Rear-ended and pushed into the car in front of her, our client was immediately taken to the University of Virginia for care. The driver of the car behind her was charged and found guilty of failing to maintain proper control and proper lookout.
Our client was diagnosed with headaches and lower back pain, as well as neck, shoulder, hip, and leg pain. She was released with pain medication. Over the following 18 months, our client needed frequent appointments and saw eight different doctors in an attempt to understand and manage her incessant pain. She saw chiropractors, physical therapists, and pain management specialists. About a year and half after her accident, her condition was considered chronic and unresolved.
Due to financial limitations, our client was unable to seek the therapies that her physician recommended. We worked towards a successful outcome, which covered her medical expenses and lost wages.Back To Results
