Place of Accident:Charlottesville, VA
Verdict or Settlement:Settlement

When another vehicle lost control and ran off the road, crossed the median, and struck our client’s car, our client was rushed to the emergency room at the University of Virginia. He suffered injuries to his head, jaw, teeth, neck, knees, shoulders, wrists, hips, and back. X-rays of his cervical spine were taken and showed damages to his spine as well as a wrist fracture. After being admitted for overnight observation, he was released with pain medication and required to wear a cervical collar.

Our client continued to see his primary care physician about his pain. He also began physical therapy at a rehabilitation center. Experiencing continued pain, our client received a steroid injection in his shoulder, an injection in his thumb, and was prescribed a knee brace. The pain did not cease and he had a shoulder decompression surgery a year after the accident occurred.

Our client still experiences pain, struggles with grasping his hand, and has a seemingly permanent loss of sensation. The case resolved for $200,000.
