Client Gets Into Florida Accident While Living In Puerto Rico
Author: Attorney Daniel Villalobos
Our clients, a 15 year old child and his grandfather, were visiting from Puerto Rico after Hurricane Irma. As they were driving on Interstate 95 and were slowing down for traffic suddenly and without warning a 4 car pileup occurs in front of them. The grandfather hit his breaks and came to an abrupt stop. The car behind our client didn’t see the car stop and rear ended our clients. Our clients were then pushed into the four car pileup in front of them. As a result the final tally was a six car pileup on Interstate 95 near exit 4 in Miami. While seeing smoke, debris, and hysterical victims all around the surrounding area, our clients called the Miami Automobile Accident Attorneys Dell and Schaefer.
Our Clients Undergo Treatment
Our clients underwent treatment at a local doctor in San Juan Puerto Rico. Because the accident occurred in Miami, our clients were able to qualify for $10,000 each for a total of $20,000 in personal injury protection benefits to pay towards medical care and lost wages. Our clients underwent an intense physican therapy regimen in Puerto Rico and also underwent MRI’s. The MRI’s came back almost normal given the ages of each client. However, due to the big impact, our firm was confident we could recover a personal injury settlement, despite the lack of injuries on the MRI reports.
Dell and Schaefer Negotiate A Settlement
After the treatment finished, our firm filed a bodily injury demand against the insurance companies for the other five drivers of the six car pileup. Our firm sought monetary compensation for bodily injury, pain and suffering, aggravation of a preexisting condition, loss of consortium, disfigurement, disability, mental anguish, property damage, past and future medical expenses, lost wages, and inability to earn future wages. After a lengthy negotiation, our firm was able to recover $40,000 for each client for a total of $80,000. Our clients were ecstatic they were able to get that kind of money while undergoing treatment in a beautiful tropical island such as Puerto Rico.
