Road Construction on Beachline - Melbourne Man Injured

Car accidents in construction zones of Florida highways are all too common.  These accidents often occur due to congested traffic in these constructions zones, sudden stops/slow downs in these areas, pavement changes, lane redirecting and construction vehicles entering and leaving the highway. 

On August 3, 2010, a 49 year old Melbourne, Florida man was injured when the vehicle he was riding in was rear ended at a high rate of speed by a large truck.  The rear end impact then caused his vehicle to spin and crash head on into a concrete wall.  A construction vehicle leaving the highway caused the initial slow down of traffic.

The Melbourne, Florida man sustained a severe neck injury which required anterior cervical diskectomy and fusion (ACDF) at C5-C6 and C6-C7 with total C6 corpectomy and posterior cervical fusion at C5-C6 and C6-C7.  

Layman Law Firm, P.L. recently resolved this case for $300,000.00.
