Settlement For Double Amputee
Recently we had the pleasure of representing a double amputee who was injured while being transported to dialysis. The driver did not properly secure him and when she stopped short, he was thrown from his seat and suffered a broken hip. He also suffered an injury to his finger that was seriously complicated by his diabetes. This client was in pretty poor health and ended up in a skilled nursing facility as a result of his injuries and other medical complications. We not only had to fight with the auto insurance company, we had to fight with his health insurance to make sure they did not demand repayment for unrelated health issues he was treating for in the facility. Our medical expenses ended up being about $103,000. We were able to settle the case for $500,000 and get the client well over $250,000 in his pocket.

Car Accident With Injuries
I met one of my nicest clients ever in the hospital while back. His car had been demolished when the defendant made a left turn in front of him with no warning. The crash report was against us indicating the officer wasn’t exactly sure who was at fault for the crash. That crash report would have caused some attorneys to shy away from the case, but given the severity of our client’s injuries, we stayed involved to fight for him because he was in no condition to deal with the insurance company himself while he focused on healing. He suffered a crushed tibia and other various fractures. He treated for 15 months before finally being released from care. He was unable to work for the duration of his treatment, causing financial hardship for his family. We were able to present over $26,000 of medical expenses and $20,000 in lost wages. The case resolved for $385,000.

As a result of a serious hematoma on her leg she was admitted for surgery, went through wound care, and was left with scarring. While she only treated for a relatively short time, her scarring was permanent. She incurred approximately $45,000 in medical expenses. We were able to settle her case for $350,000.
