Scooter Accident Resolves in $50,000 Policy Limits Settlement
Client Gets Into A Scooter Accident
Our client, a mid-thirties man from Naples, Florida, was visiting friends in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. He borrowed a friend’s scooter and was scooting around the neighborhood enjoying the sunny South Florida weather. As he was cruising along, suddenly and without warning a vehicle pulled out of a driveway and into the path of the scooter. Our client struck the car and flew over the hood landing on the other side of the road. During the fall from the hood, our client stuck out his right arm to help ease the impact with the concrete. In doing so his wrist suffered a fracture. As our client lay balefully on the street for help to arrive he could only wonder how on earth a bright sunny day could turn into a gloomy tragedy. Fortunately when his friends arrived they persuaded our client to call the Fort Lauderdale Scooter Accident Attorneys Dell and Schaefer. Our firm wasted no time signing up the case and began the process of turning our client’s frown upside down.
Client Is Rushed To Hospital
Our client was rushed to Westside Regional hospital via the ambulance. The treating physician at the hospital diagnosed our client with a fracture of the radial styloid. The treating physician placed our client in a hard cast for 6 weeks and ordered physical therapy for 2 months after the cast was removed. Our client underwent the intense physical therapy regimen and made a great recovery.
Dell and Schaefer Negotiate A Settlement
After the treatment was over our firm filed a bodily injury demand against the insurance company for the car who caused the accident. Our firm aggressively sought monetary compensation for bodily injury, pain and suffering, disability, disfigurement, loss of consortium, mental anguish, property damage, past and future medical expenses, lost wages, and impairment of ability to earn future wages. After a lengthy negotiation, the case resolved for the policy limits of $50,000.
