$222,000 Award - Car Accident - Ibuprofen Use For Injuries Causes Ulcers

Attorney Graves secured an award at arbitration for over $222,000.00 for a client who developed ulcers from the anti-inflammatory medications prescribed as a result of a car accident. The client was rear-ended and suffered severe strains to her neck and back as well as the onset of post-traumatic headache. For these injuries, she was properly prescribed by her doctors various anti-inflammatory medications. Her chronic use of these medications caused her to develop several ulcers approximately 18 months after the accident. The ulcers required surgical repair. Recoveries were made from both the at fault driver's automobile insurance carrier as well as the client's underinsured motorist policy.
