$50,000 - Man suffers injuries after being hit by drunk driver
$50,000 - Settlement awarded to our client after a drunk driver ran a traffic light at the intersection of Holland Sylvania and Dorr Street, striking the side of his vehicle, and totalling ther car.
Following the Ohio car accident injury, our client was transferred by ambulance to Flower Hospital. It is believed that his face hit the driver's side window causing numerous abrasions and cuts on his face. He was complaining of head, neck, right leg pain, and chest, upper and mid back pain. He was diagnosed with neck strain, facial lacerations and face/scalp lacerations. He was treated and given some pain medication along with instructions to follow-up with his family physician.
Due to the severity of his pain, he returned to St. Anne's and Toledo Hospital over the course of the next couple days.
The following week, our client sought treatment with Dr. Matthew Bertollini, who diagnosed him with cervical sprain/strain, nonallopathic cervical lesion, cervicogenic cephalgia, paravertebral muscle spasms, lumbar sprain/strain, knee sprain/strain and thoracic sprain/strain. His treatment consisted of electrical muscle stimulation, heat/ice packs, exercise and manipulative therapy. He continued to treat but was eventually referred out, as he was not improving.
He then saw Dr. Nabil Ebraheim for his neck and back pain. It was recommended that he start to receive pain injections into anterior point of the spinous process, clavicle and left and right sacroiliac joints. Over the course of the next couple months, our client continued to return to Dr. Ebraheim for pain injections. He later underwent bilateral radio frequency ablation of the sacroiliac joints, since he was suffering from cervical sprain and sacroilitis. It was indicated by Dr. Ebraheim that our client will continue to have back pain with some limitations, and most likely need surgery in the future.
