Settled. The at-fault driver told police she rear-ended our client because her brakes failed, but an examination of the vehicle by her own insurance showed the brakes functioned properly. Our client, traveling east on Galena Boulevard in Aurora, stopped because the vehicle in front of her stopped to turn onto Blackhawk Street and was rear-ended. She sustained injuries to her neck and back. This was settled before a trial date was set. State Farm.
