Imagine driving down a California highway and seeing an oncoming car drift into your lane. Suddenly they hit you in a head-on collision, destroying your car and sending you to the hospital with severe injuries.
That’s what happened to one of our clients at Sally Morin Personal Injury Lawyers. They contacted us shortly after the accident when they became overwhelmed with medical bills while trying to recover from a series of major surgeries.
These kinds of cases are all too common. More than half of all U.S. traffic fatalities occur due to a driver crossing the center line and slamming into oncoming traffic. You’ll be lucky to survive such a severe head-on collision.
Serious Injuries, Major Surgeries, and Expensive Bills
Our client had a 6-inch full-thickness laceration of their upper arm, which required three surgeries. They also had a left metatarsal fracture, meaning the bones in their left foot were crushed and broken. This put them in a foot cast and boot for an extended period.
They called Sally Morin Personal Injury Lawyers because their medical bills were stacking up and they were getting bogged down by all of the paperwork and hassle from the car accident. They wanted to focus on healing but were also worried about expensive bills since they couldn’t work and were losing daily income.
The at-fault driver who hit them didn’t have a liability policy at the time of the accident, so minimal insurance funds were available. But this didn’t stop our attorney team. We continued to investigate potential sources of compensation for our client.
How We Helped Our Client Recover From the Accident
After a severe California car accident, it’s our goal to help you not only survive but thrive. You should be able to focus on your recovery instead of worrying about your bank account and all of the insurance paperwork. Adequate legal assistance helps immensely in this traumatic and expensive situation.
In this case, the client said the best thing we did for them was to work with the insurance company and process all of their medical bills, helping relieve their burden of stress. We made sure their bill payments stayed current, preventing potential late fees and credit damage.
Our attorney team relentlessly pursued paths to compensation that could alleviate this client’s expenses. Ultimately, we found a $15,000 available policy that covered a large portion of the costs. Plus, we worked with the medical providers to arrange lower amounts due, reducing the total medical costs from more than $90,000 to under $5,000.
This meant our client kept $60,000 of the $100,000 total settlement after paying their remaining medical and legal costs. What a relief! Although it took time for this injured person to rest and recover, they could always rest assured that the legal details were under control.
