Our Client Is Rear Ended By Another Car
Our client, a 35 year old construction worker and father of two was driving his vehicle in Pensacola, Florida. As he approached and slowed down at the intersection of Martin Luther King JR Drive and E. Cervantes Street, suddenly and without warning another vehicle struck him from behind. The impact was so great that his entire trunk was destroyed. The accident also crushed the laptop computer in the trunk as well as other expensive valuables. Not knowing what to do he called the Pensacola Accident Attorneys Dell and Schaefer. Our firm quickly sent out a private investigator to the scene of the accident. Our investigator took pictures of everything and our firm was able to properly document why our client did not have any negligence in this accident. 100% of the liability rested with the defendant who rear ended our client.
Our Client Begins Treatment
Immediately after the accident our client began a course of physical therapy with a local chiropractor. The doctor examined our client and diagnosed him with neck sprain/strain, whiplash and contusions to the head. The doctor prescribed an intense physical therapy regimen, which our client underwent. After the completion of the treatment, our client did not feel much relief. As a result, our client sought the care and medical attention of a local orthopedic surgeon. The orthopedic surgeon recommended MRI’s. The MRI’s of the neck and lower back revealed multi level herniations up and down the spine. The orthopedic surgeon recommended surgery, which our client did not want to do. Rather he received two epidural injections—one to his neck and one to his lower back. Our client did feel temporary relief from his pain for a few months however the pain returned.
Dell And Schaefer Negotiate A Settlement
After the treatment was over, our firm filed a bodily injury demand with the defendant’s insurance company. Our firm sought monetary compensation for bodily injury, aggravation of a pre-existing 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 resolved the case for the policy limits of $50,000. Our client was absolutely thrilled that our firm was able to get the maximum recovery available in the case.
