Miami Premises Liability Lawyers Dell & Schaefer Settle Case for $75,000 in Spite of Good Medical Result
When you are injured in an accident, the hope is that, with medical treatment, your injuries may heal. If you do achieve a good medical result, however, you may feel that you cannot pursue a personal injury case. After all, you may think, you won’t be able to pursue a case if your injuries aren’t permanently catastrophic.
This isn’t necessarily true. Even if your injuries end up being not as bad as initially feared, you may still be able to recover compensation for those injuries. In the State of Florida, injured people are entitled to recover compensation for pain & suffering that occurred immediately after an accident and then got better with time. The following story illustrates the point.
Miami Accident Leads to Finger Injury
Our client was a forty-year-old woman. At the time of her accident, she was located at a restaurant in Miami. She was scoping out the restaurant as a possible location for the birthday party of her daughter’s friend. Unfortunately, as our client walked through a door leading from the indoor part of the restaurant to the outdoor patio, an employee of the restaurant slammed the door onto our client’s hand. Our client’s hand was badly injured, and a piece of her finger was severed. The piece of severed finger was recovered, and our client was rushed to the hospital.
There at the hospital, a hand specialist performed emergency surgery on our client’s hand. The piece of severed finger was reattached. Our client was eventually discharged from the hospital and ordered to undergo physical therapy. She began to attend physical therapy sessions several times a week for multiple months.
Miami Premises Liability Law Firm Dell and Schaefer Settles Case for $75,000
Following the physical therapy, our client initially feared that she might not be able to pursue a personal injury case. After all, her finger had recovered very well. Although at one point a piece of our client’s finger had been severed, the finger had now recovered much of its functionality.
Nevertheless, our client made the wise decision to hire the Premises Liability Attorneys at Dell & Schaefer. We took the case and filed a lawsuit. We argued to the defense attorneys that, although our client’s finger may have regained much of its functionality, the difference in appearance of the finger before and after the accident was very difficult for our client for our client to accept. After all, the finger that had been injured was our client’s ring finger. As a married woman, our client cared very much about the appearance of her ring finger. That was the finger upon which she wore her wedding ring! After the accident, our client’s ring finger had a very funny appearance. To our client, this was a big deal.
These arguments helped us to settle our client’s case for $75,000. Our client was happy with the result. Whereas she once feared she might not be able to bring a lawsuit, we had now helped to achieve a $75,000 settlement.
