Highlighting Attorney Rakin Hamad: $175,000 Settlement Attained in Complex Rear-End Collision Case

Attorney Rakin Hamad secured a substantial settlement of $175,000 in a complex rear-end collision case.

The case centers around an incident where the plaintiff, who was stopped at a red light, became the victim of a rear-end collision in Prince William County. What sets this case apart are the plaintiff’s pre-existing lower back injuries, which had led to the implantation of an implantable pulse generator (IPG) in her back five years prior to this collision. This rechargeable battery-operated spinal cord stimulator (SCS) was intended to alleviate her pain. Following the collision, the plaintiff immediately experienced pain over her implant site, which persisted over the course of a year. Compounded by her inability to charge the IPG as effectively as before the collision, the plaintiff underwent a significant SCS IPG revision procedure, moving the implant location in hopes of mitigating her pain.

Central to the case was the question of whether the charging issues stemmed from the collision or were due to the IPG nearing the end of its operational life. The standard lifespan for the IPG was nine years, yet the plaintiff’s device required replacement after just six years.

The settlement is a reflection of Attorney Rakin Hamad’s unwavering commitment to his client’s well-being. It stands as a reminder of the critical role legal expertise plays in achieving just outcomes, particularly in cases as nuanced as this.
