A man who suffered a back injury when his car was hit from behind by a Ford Econoline van owned by the Cobb County Board of Health has received a $1.75 million settlement, lawyers on both sides said this week.

Allen Robinson, now 44, was stopped in front of his home on Pat Mell Road, turn signal flashing, waiting for traffic to clear so he could make a left turn into his driveway, when the van crashed into his vehicle, according to the lawsuit. The wreck was six years ago. Since then, Robinson has undergone two surgeries for spinal fusion to relieve a herniated disk and amassed medical bills totaling $423,000, according to a plaintiff’s summary filed with the court. The driver of the van, a health department employee, was cited for following too closely.
