CASE DETAILS

CASE SUMMARY


In August 2018, our client was heading east on 6th Ave W. in Bradenton in his Dodge Ram. Near the crossroad of 6th Ave W and 15th St. W, multiple lanes of travel merge. A freight truck began to merge onto 6th Ave W and crossed into our client’s lane of travel, causing a serious collision. The Bradenton Police Department responded to the scene and the driver of the freight truck tried to blame our client for the accident. There were no witnesses. Fortunately, our client had a dash cash video that clearly showed that the freight truck was at fault for the accident. Without the dash cam, it would have simply been a he said/he said case. The driver of the freight truck was then cited for failing to maintain a single lane. Our client’s truck was deemed a total loss.

Injuries/Treatment:
Our client immediately felt pain and proceeded to Manatee Memorial Hospital. He followed up with a doctor who specializes in auto accidents. He had complaints of pain in his shoulder, his neck, and his mid and lower back. He was sent out for MRIs. The MRIs of his back revealed multiple disc herniations. He was recommended for conservative care with a chiropractor. When those sessions completed and he still was experiencing pain, he was referred to a pain management doctor in St. Petersburg where he underwent two lumbar epidural steroid injections. When these injections produced only minimal results, he was referred to an orthopedic surgeon who recommended surgery.

Settlement:
This case settled in July 2019.

CASE RESULTS

This case settled in pre-litigation, and our client received compensation for:

  • medical expenses – past and future
  • pain and suffering – past and future
  • physical impairment – past and future
