Motorist Robin Berhorst was driving southbound on US 69 in Clay County on April 1, 2004 when he was caught in the middle of a three-car crash. Barbara Tucker had stopped to turn left out of the driving lane, rather than the center turning lane, forcing Berhorst to stop behind her. While waiting, a semi hit Berhorst from behind, slamming him into the back of Tucker’s car.

Berhorst suffered injuries to nearly his entire body including his neck, back and head, as well as his arms and legs, severe ligament damage, as well as full body pain and trauma. Experts were able to assess Berhorst’s future medical expenses, as well as his future lost earnings, helping the personal injury attorneys to secure the settlement before going to trial.
