$225,000 Settlement — Truck Accident
Attorney: Darren Dawson
Without warning, a defendant truck driver rear-ended our client resulting in injuries to his neck, back and left shoulder. Our client, who was 60 years old at the time of the wreck and treated for a couple years, required multiple pain injections and eventually surgery on a torn rotator cuff. Medical bills totaled roughly $65,000. After a lengthy recovery and extensive discussions with the insurance carrier, the team at Riddle & Brantley successfully negotiated a settlement of $225,000. This is considered an excellent result since he had a prior accident which injured his shoulder. This is also a good example of why it is important for injured victims to be patient. A good result may take some time for the client to treat.
