Parag Mathur, 51, was stopped for a red light at an intersection. A truck that was traveling in the same direction rear-ended an SUV two cars behind Mathur’s vehicle. That caused the SUV to leave the roadway and caused the truck to crash into the car directly behind Mathur’s car. That car, in turn, plowed into Mathur’s car.
Mathur suffered herniated disks at C5-6, C7-T1, T11-12, and L5-S1, as well as bulging disks in his cervical spine.
In addition, he suffered a torn right medial meniscus and shoulder injuries. He required physical therapy and spinal surgeries. He continues to experience back pain and diminished range of motion.
