Dell & Schaefer Obtains $85,000 for Kendall Auto Accident Victim
Kendall Resident Rear-Ended by Commercial Vehicle
Our client, a 50-year-old father who lives in Kendall, Florida, was driving his vehicle in Miami. When he approached the intersection of 107th Ave and Flagler Street, he had to stop his car due to traffic congestion. Suddenly and without warning, the commercial vehicle behind our client rear-ended his vehicle. This was a significant impact because both cars were not operable after the accident. The impact also caused our client to feel immediate pain in his neck and back. Because our client did not have health insurance and because he was not aware that his automobile insurance would pay up to $10,000 towards any medical bills, our client declined transport to the hospital. Fortunately, he called Kendall Automobile Accident Attorneys Dell and Schaefer.
Our Client Begins A Course Of Physical Therapy
Within days of the accident, our client sought the care and medical attention of a local chiropractor. The treating physician examined our client and diagnosed him with sprain/strain of the lower and upper back. The doctor prescribed an intense physical therapy regimen. After two weeks of physical therapy without any relief from pain, the doctor referred our client for an MRI of the cervical and lumbar spine. The MRI showed a herniated disc in his upper back. Because the MRI showed positive findings for trauma related injury, the chiropractor referred our client for an orthopedic evaluation. The orthopedic surgeon diagnosed our client with a herniated disc in his neck related to the automobile accident. The orthopedic surgeon recommended a minimally invasive surgery done under local anesthesia. The 20 minute procedure was performed in an outpatient center and our client went home immediately afterwards.
Dell and Schaefer Negotiate A Settlement
After the surgery, our firm filed a bodily injury claim against the driver of the commercial truck’s insurance company. Our firm demanded monetary payment for all compensatory damages — bodily injury, aggravation of a preexisting condition, 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, the case settled for $85,000. Our client was absolutely thrilled that he was able to receive a life-changing settlement, especially in light of the fact that his wife was currently undergoing expensive medical care for her preexisting conditions and his family was in desperate need of money.
