My client, a 61-year-old man, was driving on the freeway and was rear-ended by an SUV. The driver of the SUV kept on going and did not pull over, but my client took down the license plate number and the police found the owner of the vehicle.
My client suffered neck, back, and shoulder pain and began treating with his doctors right away. Despite many different types of treatment, the pain did not go away and my client continued to be unable to work. His doctors also prescribed attendant care services.
The insurance company for the person who rear-ended my client’s vehicle sent him to three doctors for an “Independent Medical Examination.” All three found that my client was severely injured in the accident.
Despite all of this evidence, the defendant’s insurance company decided to reject my client’s claim and refuse to pay for his pain and suffering. They would not even admit that he suffered a significant injury!
I fought for my client and got him a $242,500 settlement for his pain and suffering.
