$185,000 Settlement For Port St. Lucie Auto Accident Victim
Our client, a 25 year old construction worker, was driving northbound on US-1 on a Saturday afternoon when he was rear-ended at a high rate of speed just as he was stopping at a red light. His right knee hit the dashboard and immediately began to swell.
In addition to a knee injury, our client sustained neck and back pain and stiffness.
Due to the severity of his injuries, our client retained Port St. Lucie Accident Attorneys, Dell & Schaefer, to collect damages for his injuries, pain and suffering, as well as economic damages.
After two months of treatment and physical therapy, our client had an MRI taken of his right knee, which revealed a torn meniscus.
Our client made a successful recovery from his injuries, but suffered lost wages and medical expenses in the amount of $40,000.00 (forty thousand dollars).
Attorneys Dell & Schaefer filed suit in the St. Lucie County Circuit Court against the defendant driver. After depositions were completed, the case settled at a court ordered mediation for $185,000.00 (one hundred and eighty-five thousand dollars).
