Automobile Accident Case Resolves for $75,000 Policy Limit
Client Is Struck In The Rear
Our client, a mid 50’s single man, was stopped at a stop sign in Port St. Lucie, Florida. Suddenly and without warning, our client was struck from behind by a vehicle moving at 50 miles per hour. The impact was so great that his car launched forward and struck the car in front of him. Dazed, confused, and in a lot of pain, our client opened up his door and got out to make sure nobody was killed in the accident. Fortunately nobody suffered the ultimate fate, and everyone lived to see another day. However the next day was not an easy one for our client. In excruciating pain, our client was able to lift up his hand and dial the Port St. Lucie automobile accident attorneys Dell and Schaefer. Our firm, realizing our client was in no condition to drive, sent one of our top rated litigators to our client’s house to sign him up personally.
Client Undergoes Surgery
After retaining our firm, our client sought medical care from a local chiropractic physician. Our client believed in holistic medicine before any invasive procedures or oral medications. Our client underwent manual therapy, electric stimulation, gentle adjustments to his neck and back, hot cold packs, dry hydrotherapy/whirlpool therapy, trigger point therapy, and coordinated stretching exercises. After months of therapy, our client found little relief. He had no choice but to see an orthopedic surgeon, who in turn administered several epidural injections for pain. Our client was not happy about having to undergo injections, however his only other option was to live in pain for the rest of his life. Fortunately, our client did get long term relief from the injections.
Dell and Schaefer Negotiate A Settlement
After the treatment ended, our firm filed a bodily injury demand against the insurance company who caused the accident. Our firm sought monetary damages for bodily injury, aggravation of a preexisting condition, pain and suffering, loss of consortium, disfigurement, disability, mental anguish, property damage, past and future medical expenses, lost wages, and impairment of ability to earn future wages. Our firm resolved the case for $75,000, which was the policy limits between the tortfeasor’s $25,000 bodily injury policy, and our client’s non-stacked underinsured motorist policy of $50,000.
