Car Accident Attorney Dell & Schafer Gets $20,000 for Tavernier Couple
Our Clients’ Vehicle Is Rear Ended While Driving on U.S. 1
Our clients were traveling southbound on U.S. 1 in Tavernier, Florida after work. Suddenly and without warning, the defendant bumped into our clients’ vehicle at a low rate of speed after failing to realize that our client stopped for traffic. Despite the low impact of the accident, both of our clients felt slight pain in their neck and back. Since the accident seemed minor, our clients believed the pain would be temporary and would go away on its own. Two weeks after the accident, the pain did not subside and our clients called Tavernier Auto Accident Attorneys Dell and Schaefer for help. Our firm met the clients in the comfort of their own home to get the legal paperwork signed and begin representation.
Our Clients’ Begin a Course of Physical Therapy
Since two weeks had passed without any relief from pain, our clients sought the care and medical treatment of a local chiropractor. The chiropractor did a thorough examination of our clients and determined that both had a mild case of whiplash and sprain in their neck. Our clients began a course of physical therapy. After approximately three weeks of physical therapy, our clients saw a good deal of improvement from their pain levels. As such, the chiropractor felt that both clients had made complete recoveries from their injuries. The chiropractor felt that our clients did not need to undergo an MRI nor an orthopedic evaluation.
Dell and Schaefer Obtain $20,000 Settlement for Clients
After the physical therapy ended, our firm immediately filed a bodily injury claim against the defendant’s insurance company. Despite the low impact of the accident and only a few weeks of physical therapy treatments, our firm still zealously represented our clients’ interests against the insurance company. Our firm sought monetary compensation 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 process, our firm collected $20,000, which was the policy limit in the case. Our clients were absolutely thrilled that we represented their interests the same way we represent our client’s whose injuries warrant million dollar settlements.
