Bachus & Schanker, LLC Client Wins Big in Auto Trial
Amy* was a passenger in a car traveling on Arapahoe Road when her car was rear ended by a young woman distracted by her cell phone. Amy did not take an ambulance from the scene but visited the urgent care the next day. After months of PT and spinal injections, her doctors referred her to a surgeon who recommended back surgery.

At the time of the accident, Amy was a union worker at a grocery store. Amy was unable to continue work due to weight restrictions from her doctors. She missed nearly three years of work after her car accident.
State Farm was the insurance carrier for the distracted driver who hit Amy. They denied the need for surgery despite the referral by a medical doctor and refused to offer fair compensation for Amy's missed work. They offered only $35,000 to Amy for both medical bills and lost wages.
Kyle Bachus, partner at Bachus & Schanker, LLC, was unwilling to accept such a low offer for his client and decided to take the case to trial. After four days of expert witnesses, the jury awarded Amy $298,000 to cover her future surgery and her economic damages.
