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.
