On December 30, 2015, K.P. was driving northbound on the Bruckner Expressway in the second lane (from the left) in moderate traffic when a truck struck the rear of K.P.’s vehicle in Bronx, New York. After the accident, K.P. immediately felt head and back pain. Her pain grew worse over the ensuing 24-48 hours. K.P. went to the emergency room in Montefiore Medical Center where she was examined, treated, and released for outpatient care.
As a result of the accident, K.P suffered injuries to her neck, lower back (herniated disc), and shoulder. She attended physical therapy and a rehabilitation program that included hot/cold packs, electrical stimulation, massage therapy and exercises 3-4 times per week. When conservative treatment failed to improve her neck and back injury, she underwent a lumbar epidural steroid injection.
