In January 2011, the victim was seriously injured when the defendant made an improper left turn into our client’s path of travel. After being taken by ambulance to the emergency room, where he was simply given pain medication and sent home, our client was forced to undergo months of therapy and chiropractic manipulation to address his persistent and debilitating shoulder pain.
After his condition didn’t improve in a reasonable amount of time, our client was referred to an orthopedic surgeon for an evaluation. The orthopedic surgeon diagnosed our client with shoulder impingement syndrome, and recommended injections. When injections didn’t resolve our client’s pain, he was forced to undergo a complicated surgical procedure to correct the impingement and improve his shoulder’s mobility.
After the surgery was performed, our client’s medical bills arising from the collision had reached more than $63,000.00. Regrettably, the defendant who caused the collision only carried insurance limits of $25,000.00, which we collected for our client. Our client’s under-insured motorist coverage would only provide an additional $25,000.00, for a total settlement of $50,000.00. Rather than leaving the client with outstanding medical bills and no net award for the pain and suffering he had endured, the Dunnion Law Firm tirelessly negotiated with the client’s medical providers to take significantly less than they were owed in full satisfaction of the client’s bills. The Dunnion Law Firm’s diligence and perseverance allowed the client to walk away with over $13,000.00 in his pocket, and no outstanding medical bills hanging over his head.
