In March 2011, our 26-year-old client sustained severe and permanent injuries when she was injured at the home of the defendant. Our client was standing in the driveway when the defendant, who was in her car, backed over our client. Emergency medical services were contacted to transport our client to the hospital to treat her extensive injuries.
At the hospital, our client was diagnosed with serious fractures to her pelvis, back, and left ankle. Additionally, she had severe bruising along her entire body as well as a spinal bruise. Our client remained in the hospital for the next five days before she was able to go home. Once she was discharged from the hospital, she remained confined to her home and wheelchair and depended upon the assistance of home health aides as she was unable to walk. She also required extensive physical therapy and rehabilitation to assist her in regaining her strength and ability to walk. Prior to the accident, our client was a young and healthy 26-year-old. After the accident, she experiences extreme pain and is unable to walk without the assistance of a cane.
Our firm was retained to assist our client in her recovery and our team worked tirelessly to ensure that our client got the recovery she deserved. Not only did we secure a policy limits settlement offer from the defendant’s insurance, but we also increased our client’s recovery by arguing that underinsured motorist coverage applied to cover her damages beyond what the defendant’s policy covered.
