$100,000 Settlement – Woman Suffers Injury to Ankle When She is Rear-Ended in Auto Accident

In 2017, our client sustained an injury to her foot and ankle when she was involved in a motor vehicle accident. Both our client and the defendant driver were traveling in the same direction when the defendant driver failed to maintain assured clear distance and rear-ended our client. When it became apparent to our client that the defendant was going to rear-end her, she pressed her brakes to avoid a collision with the car in front of her.

The day after the accident, our client sought treatment from a chiropractor to address her foot pain. Unfortunately, the treatment did not alleviate the pain, causing our client to seek additional treatment. In attempts to reduce the pain, our client underwent several rounds of steroid injections in her ankle, a month of physical therapy, and was ordered to a wear a brace on her injured foot. When none of these treatments minimized our client’s pain, her doctor ordered an MRI which showed a tendon tear in our client’s ankle. Our client underwent surgery to repair the injury. Several weeks after the operation, our client began physical therapy again and the pain in her ankle began to improve. While our client saw great improvements from when the injury happened, she still dealt with continued pain in her ankle.

We were contacted by our client shortly after the accident to assist her in her recovery. Due to a successful negotiation, we obtained a policy limits settlement for our client and avoided the need for her to go through a stressful trial.
