Woman Hires Dell and Schaefer For Her Automobile Accident And Receives $50,000
Author: Attorney Daniel Villalobos
Woman Is Struck By A Driver Making An Illegal Left Turn
Our client was driving home from work on day on Interstate 95 near Fort Pierce, Florida. As traffic slowed down suddenly and without warning another driver, who was texting and talking on the telephone at the same time, struck our client in the rear of her vehicle. Both drivers pulled over to the side of the road after the accident. She immediately felt pain in her neck and back. The driver who struck our client pleaded with our client not to call the police. Our client knew better and she contacted the authorities who made a police report documenting the course of events, her injuries, and citing the other driver with fault in the accident. After she returned home she called the Fort Pierce Automobile Accident Attorneys Dell and Schaefer. Our firm quickly took the case and began the process of zealously representing our client’s interests.
Our Client Begins Treatment With A Local Chiropractor
A day after the accident, when it was clear that the pain in her neck and back would not subside, she sought the care and medical treatment of a local chiropractor. Within a week she felt relief from pain. She referred to the chiropractor as “Mr. Magic Hands.” Despite her relief from pain, she would still have intermittent flair ups. As a result, the treating physician referred her for an MRI of her cervical and lumbar spine. The MRI showed multi-level herniations. Since she had positive findings, the treating physician sent her for an orthopedic evaluation. The orthopedic doctor administered several epidural injections for pain.
Dell and Schaefer Negotiate A Settlement
After the treatment finished our firm filed a bodily injury demand against the insurance company. Our firm demanded monetary compensation for bodily injury, aggravation of a preexisting condition, pain and suffering, loss of consortium, disfigurement, disability, mental anguish, property damage, past and future medical expenses, lost wages, and impairment of ability to earn future wages. After a lengthy negotiation, our firm settled the case for $50,000.
