Dell & Schaefer Recover Policy Limits the day after the accident
Author: Attorney Daniel Villalobos
Our Client Is Struck While Riding His Motorcycle
Our client, a middle aged father of two, was riding his motorcycle in Lauderhill, Florida. Suddenly and without warning, a car made an illegal left turn in front of our client. Our client struck the front passenger side of the car and flew off his motorcycle, on top of the hood, landed on the ground, and rolled over and over for approximately 20 feet. Fortunately our client was wearing a helmet and did not sustain any serious head injuries. Fortunately as well he landed in the street and did not strike any other objects such as a tree or another car. Unfortunately, he did suffer a fractured knee.
Our Client Is Rushed To The Hospital
After the accident, the ambulance rushed our client to the hospital. The treating emergency room doctor diagnosed our client with a meniscus tear in his right knee and a fractured patella. He spent approximately 3 days in the hospital recuperating from his injuries. In addition the hospital placed a hard cast on our client’s leg. After he was discharged from the hospital he underwent an intense physical therapy regimen using his health insurance to cover the costs.
Dell & Schaefer Negotiate A Settlement
After the accident, our firm filed a bodily injury demand against GEICO Insurance Company. Our firm sought monetary damages for bodily injury, aggravation of a preexisting injury, 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. It is important to note that our firm filed our bodily injury demand one day after the accident, prior to our client’s discharge from the hospital. Our firm knew the seriousness of our client’s injuries the moment we got the call and wasted no time going after the insurance company. GEICO insurance company was a little startled that our firm was aggressively pursuing a settlement so quickly after the accident. They realized immediately the serious tone of our firm and tendered out the bodily injury limits without hesitation. The amount of the settlement is confidential under the terms of the settlement agreement however you can be rest assured that our client was absolutely thrilled that our firm immediately defended his rights and got him the maximum recovery under the law. It must be noted that this settlement was the fastest resolution one of the attorneys at our firm had ever received. Another job well done.
