San Diego Child Accident Attorney Mark C. Blane represented a 16-year old girl for injuries sustained from a rear-end car accident in El Cajon, California. The girl suffered from soft-tissue type injuries. However, it was determined that she had cervical loss motion segment integrity from the automobile accident. Thus, her cervical spine rated at 20% impairment under the AMA (American Medical Association) Guidelines 5th Edition which allowed Mr. Blane to argue a foundation for future medical care. Although this case was a non-surgical case, the young lady sustained severe soft tissue injury to her neck under the AMA guidelines. As a result of the medical documentation, Mr. Blane was able to successfully negotiate a settlement for the girl.
