College Student Struck By Golf Cart Settles For Large Personal Injury Settlement
Author: Attorney Daniel Villalobos
Our Client Is Walking To Class
Our client, a 20 year old college student, was walking to class. As she stopped in the middle of the courtyard to speak to her friend, suddenly and without warning, campus security, which were patrolling the area lost control of the golf cart and struck my client. The impact threw our client to the ground and caused her to sustain damages to her neck, back, and knees. The campus security guard simply apologized and drove away thinking he was free and clear of consequences. Our client felt pain later that night and didn’t know what to do. The following morning, she called the Pembroke Pines Personal Injury Lawyers Dell & Schaefer. Our firm knew this case was unique but we knew right away that the owners of the college campus were vicariously liable for the negligence of their employees. Our firm quickly took the case and opened up an injury claim with the insurance company for the campus.
Our Client Begins Treatment
Immediately after the accident, our client sought the care and medical treatment from a local chiropractor. The chiropractor diagnosed her with sprain strain to the neck and back as well as a contusion to her knees. He prescribed an intense physical therapy regimen. After the therapy was over, our client felt almost complete relief from pain.
Dell & Schaefer Negotiate A Settlement
When the treatment finished, our firm filed a bodily injury demand against the insurance company. Our firm sought monetary compensation for bodily injury, aggravation of a preexisting injury, pain and suffering, loss of consortium, disfigurement, disability, mental anguish, past and future medical expenses, lost wages, and impairment of ability to earn future wages. After a lengthy negotiation, the case settled for a large sum of money. Due to a confidentiality clause, we are unable to disclose the amount of the settlement; however, our client was absolutely thrilled that our firm was willing to file a claim against a school after being struck by a golf cart. She had called several lawyers but no one thought they could win any money. Our firm knew from the beginning, that her injuries warranted compensation, and we delivered on our promise to get her the best result possible.
