Attorney Scott Perry recently resolved a case for a young client who was rear-ended by a taxi cab that pushed her car into a stopped vehicle in front of her, resulting in airbag deployment. The force of the impact was so heavy that our client lost consciousness at the scene and suffered injuries to her knees, neck, and low back.
Our client immediately went to the hospital and sought timely, follow-up care for treatment and evaluation. Her treating chiropractor referred her to medical specialists, including orthopedic and pain management doctors.
Luckily, for our young client, she reached maximum medical improvement through physical therapy and pain management, including a lumbar facet injection.
By arguing the force of the impact, the medical bills, the medical treatment (especially the timely treatment), our client’s young age, and the likelihood for future care for the rest of her life, Attorney Perry obtained a substantial pre-suit, confidential recovery amount that fairly compensated her for her damages, including her pain, suffering, and mental anguish.
The best thing a client can do to help to protect themselves – when involved in a crash or a fall – is to get immediate and timely medical treatment, if hurt.
