Nerve-Damaging Accident Results in Half a Million Dollar Recovery – $500,000
While out with friends in San Jose, a 21-year-old, outgoing and active male was tackled from behind as he was walking to a vehicle in a parking lot. He felt his leg pop under the weight and, hours later, went to the hospital after realizing the injury needed further attention.
Upon evaluation of his right leg, orthopedic surgery was performed to set a metal plate in his right knee, which required six weeks of physical therapy. Additional neurosurgery was needed to repair nerves in the right leg which did not restore nerve function as anticipated. As a result of the incident, the young man suffers from ankle dorsiflexion, or “foot drop,” is no longer able to maintain his active lifestyle, and has become reclusive.
Dunnion Law presented a thorough assessment of this young man’s medical costs and loss of future income. Dunnion successfully achieved a recovery of half a million dollars for the young man.
