Come listen to Benjamin Cloward and Alison Brasier (hosted by Dennis Prince) as they break down their recent win over FedEx

October 18 @ 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM PDT

Over 8 years ago, in 2014, a FedEx driver was not paying attention when he slammed into the rear of Naddia’s car. In an instant, her life was forever changed when her neck, mid-back and low back were permanently damaged. As a result of this significant collision, Naddia has required consistent and ongoing medical care and treatment to minimize her pain and provide some level of quality of life. She receives rhizotomies also known as radiofrequency ablations where the doctors “burn her nerves” to destroy the pain signal from the painful areas in her neck, mid-back and low back. For the defense, FedEx tried to blame Naddia’s painful complaints on a subsequent crash that took place five months after the crash at issue. FedEx’s experts claimed that she was significantly improved after the first crash and was on her way to a full recovery and that her pain complaints were solely attributable to the second crash.
