Accident Attorneys Dell and Schaefer Settle Automobile Accident for $23,800
Author: Attorney Daniel Villalobos
Our Client Changed Lanes At The Same Time As The Defendant
Our client, a middle aged fifty year old woman from Colombia, South America, was driving her vehicle on Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood Florida. As she was nearing the intersection of U.S. 1, she changed lanes in order to make a turn onto U.S. 1. At the same time she was changing lanes to the right, the defendant was changing lanes to the left. Both vehicles struck each other at the same time. The police came to the scene and found both parties to be 50% at fault.
Our Client Feels A Shooting And Throbbing Pain In Her Neck
Immediately after the accident, our client felt pain in her upper back. Believing she was unable to get medical care because she was found to be partially at fault in the accident, she lived with the pain for approximately two weeks. She went to the primary care doctor in order to get medications for her pain. As she was in line at the pharmacy to get her prescriptions filled she began talking to a man at the pharmacy about her accident. That man was an attorney at the Dell and Schaefer Hollywood Automobile Injury Attorneys! The attorney at our firm quickly informed the victim that just because she was found to be partially at fault in the accident, she was still entitled to recover money for her injuries for whatever percentage she was not at fault in the accident. Absolutely thrilled that she struck up a conversation with one of our highly knowledgeable attorneys at our firm, she decided to hire our firm to represent her.
Our Client Goes To A Local Chiropractor
Our client began a course of physical therapy for her injuries to her neck and back. The doctor prescribed an intense physical therapy regimen. At the completion of her physical therapy, our client stated she felt amazing, her pain had gone away, she did not have to take several prescriptions medications, and she was able to go back to work and exercise freely. No surgery nor injection therapy was required.
Our Firm Negotiates A Settlement
Immediately after her treatment ended our firm filed a bodily injury demand against the insurance company for the defendant. Our firm sought monetary damages for bodily injury, aggravation of a preexisting injury, pain and suffering, loss of consortium, disability, mental anguish, property damage, past and future medical expenses, lost wages, and impairment of ability to earn future wages. After a lengthy negotiation, our firm resolved the case for $23,800! Our client was absolutely thrilled that our firm was able to get a high recovery even though our client was partially at fault in the accident. She would have lost $23,800 had she never contacted a lawyer to find out her rights.
