Settlement – Man Rear-Ended Sustains Significant Shoulder Injury Requiring SurgeryPedestrian Accident
On March 8, 2019, our client stopped at a red light on Talmadge Road, when he was read-ended by a man driving a Chrysler 300 who did not realize the light had turned red. Our client went to St. Anne Mercy Hospital for evaluation and treatment following the accident. Following the accident, he had immediate right shoulder and neck pain rated at a level of 8/10. Radiology studies were negative, and our client was discharged, but continued to have significant pain. On March 18, 2019, he was evaluated by orthopedic surgeon, Nabil Ebraheim, who diagnosed subacromial impingement syndrome. Injections were provided to alleviate the pain and physical therapy was started. Ultimately, our client was diagnosed with a full thickness supraspinatus tear (rotator cuff) with tendonitis, which required surgical repair.
Prior to litigation, the initial offer by the insurance company was under $25,000.00. Following our client’s deposition testimony, and before mediation, the insurance company tendered their full policy limits of $100,000.00. The successful strategy of filing this matter into litigation and partaking in formal discovery allowed us to secure the full policy limits available for our client without the need of taking the case to trial.
