Automobile Accident Case Resolves For $200,000 After Lengthy Negotiation
Author: Attorney Daniel Villalobos
Our Client Gets Into An Automobile Accident
Our client, a 45 year old mother of two, was driving her vehicle on a main road in Kendall, Florida. Suddenly and without warning, a truck driver side-swiped her vehicle causing her car to spin around, jump up on the curb, strike the guard rail, and spin around several more times. The car eventually came to a complete stop leaving our client dazed and confused for a few minutes. When she regained her consciousness, she realized she had just become a victim of a serious car accident. She immediately felt pain in her neck and back. She called the South Miami and Kendall Automobile Accident and Injury Attorneys Dell & Schaefer. Our firm immediately sent a qualified attorney to her house to meet with her personally. Impressed with our fast and efficient work ethic, she hired our firm on the spot.
Client Begins Treatment
Immediately after the accident, our client underwent an intense physical therapy regimen with a local chiropractor. After months of treatment without relief from pain our client had an MRI performed which showed positive findings for herniations up and down her spine. As a result of the positive findings, she sought the care and medical attention of an orthopedic surgeon. The orthopedic surgeon recommended a minimally invasive surgery—a L4-L5 Discography and Microendoscopic Diskectomy at L4-L5. Because she did not have any relief from pain with conservative treatment, our client decided to undergo the procedure.
Dell & Schaefer Negotiate A Settlement
After the procedure, our client filed a bodily injury claim with the insurance company. The original offer came in at $75,000. Our firm was not satisfied with this offer. We countered with a substantially higher amount. After a lengthy negotiation, our firm settled the case for $200,000. Our client was absolutely thrilled that our firm stayed strong in the negotiations and did not accept a low offer despite heavy pressure from the insurance company.
