Coral Gables man injured when a truck driver ran a stop sign, back, neck, and knee surgery, Dell & Schaefer recover $475,000
Our client, a 31 year old resident of Coral Gables, Florida, was driving on Douglas Road when a man driving a truck ran a stop sign, causing our client to collide into him. As a result of the collision, our client received injuries to his back, neck and knee. He was taken to Doctors Hospital and then received follow-up treatment with a chiropractor. After having MRIs, he was sent to an orthopedic surgeon, who gave him injections into his neck and back. Eventually, after no improvement, he underwent an arthroscopic surgery on his knee, neck surgery, and a low back fusion.
Our client hired Dell & Schaefer to assist him in his claim against the other driver. The defense claimed that our client was speeding, and according to the data recorder in our client’s car, he was exceeding the speed limit by approximately 10 mph.
