Client Gets Into An Accident With A Construction Device
Author: Attorney Daniel Villalobos
Our client was driving her car down a major highway in Miami Dade County, Florida. It was a sunny but windy day in the Sunshine State. As she was minding her biz and enjoying her lovely ride to work, suddenly and without warning a major gust of wind blew causing a construction barricade to come flying into the middle of the highway. Our client was unable to change lanes or make any defensive maneuvers in order to avoid the accident. The barricade struck her car directly on the front bumper and hood. Our client slammed on her brakes which caused her neck to violently jolt forward and backward.
Our Client Undergoes Medical Care
One day after the accident our client started feeling headaches and dizziness. She sought the care of a local chiropractor. The chiropractor knew immediately that her spine was out of alignment. He placed her on an intense physical therapy and chiropractic regimen. After 3 months of treatment, our client felt back to normal.
Dell and Schaefer Negotiate A Settlement
After treatment completed, our firm filed a bodily injury demand against the insurance company for the construction company that negligently placed the barricades. After a lengthy negotiation, our firm settled the case for $40,000. Our client was ecstatic that a case could settle for $40,000 with only chiropractic care.
