A woman who was diagnosed with a concussion a month after a rear-ender was awarded $82,817. In 2004, Terri Burt, then 34, was rear-ended in a parking lot as she was exiting. She sought an underinsured motorist claim with her carrier, State Farm, which disputed the value of her underinsured motorist claim. She then sued her insurer for breach of contract. Burt claimed a head injury, as well as bulges in the cervical spine which continued to cause her constant pain, she said. She was diagnosed with a concussion a month after the accident, and said she never fully recovered from it. She claimed occasional dizziness, nausea, headaches and memory loss.
