In 2011 Plaintiff Schultes was in a car on in the I-84 to I-5 interchange when she was rear-ended by a driver working for Defendant Clearwater LLC. Schultes alleged accident-related injuries to her back and neck. She had surgery on her back in 2016 which she related to the crash. She sought $97,381.46 for past and future medical expenses, $15,792.70 for past and future wage losses and $835,000.00 in non-economic damages.
Defendant Clearwater admitted liability but denied causation and the extent of Schultes’ damages. They argued that Schultes had a long history of back problems that predated the crash.
