Don’t think a personal injury lawyer can make a difference? Check out what we did for our client, Samantha, after she suffered serious injuries in a motor vehicle accident.
Samantha was involved in a motor vehicle accident that left her with severe injuries and an inability to care for her family. As she passed through an intersection, a car that failed to stop at a stop sign fully forcefully struck Samantha’s driver-side door. On impact, the airbags were deployed, and she felt immediate and excruciating pain in her back, neck, shoulders and hips. Samantha was rushed to the hospital for further assessment of her injuries.
Samantha’s Traumatic Injuries
Earlier in her life, Samantha struggled with both mental and physical health issues. However, immediately before the accident, she was healthy and happy. After her car crash, Samantha was diagnosed with a labrum tear in her left hip and experienced a sharp decline in her mental health. Medical experts stressed that her physical and mental health symptoms were very tied together. Before the accident, Samantha was an extremely active person. She was a runner, weightlifter, yogi, and coach on her children’s hockey teams. Since the collision, she is no longer able to participate in the physical, social, and family activities that were her passion.
How our Firm Helped Samantha
We helped Samantha along the recovery process, including arranging some rehab, such as meetings with psychologists and specialists. Before her accident, she spent many hours per week cooking and cleaning for her two children. We helped arrange and secure funding for a cook and cleaner for her following the injury. We also helped her secure compensation for her pain, suffering, and overall loss of quality of life.
Our firm opened a lawsuit and accident benefits claim against the driver who hit Samantha at the intersection. The lawyers prepared her for discovery and then mediation. Both parties were able to agree on a settlement at mediation. She also received compensation from her accident benefits claim. Her kids and husband received compensation because of their loss of care, companionship, and guidance due to the injury. Samantha received funds for her loss of income and need for rehab care and house cleaning. Our client was happy with her settlement, knowing that her family was taken care of and she would no longer have to worry about missing work due to her injury.
