Policy Limit Personal Injury Settlement for Client Rear-Ended by Another Vehicle on the I-110 Freeway in Los Angeles!

Our client contacted our office after he had been violently rear-ended by a vehicle that failed to yield to slowing traffic on the I-110 northbound freeway in Los Angeles, California. Our client immediately sought medical treatment and suffered a concussion, right wrist sprain, and back strain. In the days following the collision our client’s pain and discomfort did not subside and he began to experience pain to his neck and back. Our client was referred out for physical therapy treatment.

Initially, our client had sought to represent himself on his personal injury claim against the defendant’s insurance company. After almost one year of handling the claim on his own behalf, our client contacted our office for assistance. We were able to quickly evaluate his case, make contact with the defendant’s insurance company, request all medical and accident related records and documentation, and handle the medical subrogation liens that had overwhelmed our client.

After finishing his first round of physical therapy treatment to address the back and neck pain our client was experiencing, our client returned to his primary care doctor for re-referral to physical therapy because his pain was not subsiding. Our client then underwent a second round of physical therapy treatment. At the end of this second course of treatment, our client’s pain began to diminish.

At that point, we gathered all the liability documentation, police report, and medical records and sent the “Demand Package” to the defendant’s insurance company. After negotiating with the defendant’s insurance company, we were able to obtain the entire policy limit as settlement for the claim! We were also able to negotiate the medical subrogation lien on our client’s behalf, significantly reducing the amount of medical expenses our client was required to pay in this matter. This is an amazing result for our client that resulted in a great settlement award for his injuries!
