$135,000 Car Accident

Greene County, VA
Type Of Case:Car accident
Location:Greene County, VA
Verdict or Settlement:Settlement
Key Takeaways:Despite the fact that a doctor says you may need surgery in the future, insurance companies don’t give it the same weight as if you have had the surgery performed. It is difficult to resolve cases with future surgeries pending.

Our client was injured in a car accident in which the driver of another vehicle crossed into our client’s lane and collided with him. In the collision, our client tore his rotator cuff. An orthopedic doctor opined that he would need surgery. He decided not to pursue the surgery at that time. We submitted the case to the insurance company with a cost estimate. They made an initial offer of only $5,000. After one-and-a-half years passed, the pain was still too much and he had the surgery performed. We were ultimately able to settle the case for over 27 times the original offer.
