Accident victim awarded $1.45 million settlement for spinal cord injury from city of Palo Alto

Silvio Oberon has been awarded a $1.45 motor vehicle accident settlement for serious spinal cord injuries he received when he was rear ended by a city of Palo Alto utility worker. Oberon had originally asked for $5million in his lawsuit.

The motor vehicle accident was caused by driver inattention; Oberon’s vehicle, was rear-ended when Ruben Salas, who worked for the city, reached for a cell phone.

Oberon’s injuries cause him to suffer severe pain due to peripheral neuropathy which is a painful nerve condition. He was fitted with an electronic stimulator which was implanted to help control his back pain.

Spinal Cord Injuries can have devastating consequence including paraplegia, quadriplegia, loss of bowel and bladder control, loss of sexual functioning and muscle atrophy.
