Settlement Result: A Solid Outcome

Our client, a legal secretary, suffered a shoulder injury that turned out to be a torn rotator cuff and labral tear due to a side-swipe collision with a semi-truck on a busy freeway in Los Angeles, California. Beyond the physical pain and emotional distress, our client encountered difficulties with medical bills, paperwork overwhelm, and the need to focus on healing while dealing with a loss of income. Adding insult to injury, the insurance company disputed our client’s injury and claimed it was unrelated to the accident, further complicating the situation.

We utilized our extensive network of experts, conducted thorough investigations, and compiled compelling evidence to support our client’s claim. Through relentless advocacy and skilled negotiations, we successfully beat the liability dispute and obtained a remarkable $300,000 settlement for our client.

Geographic Factors

Los Angeles Car Accidents and Staying Safe Side-swipe accidents involving semi-trucks on Los Angeles freeways are unfortunately not uncommon. Due to the bustling nature of the city, heavy traffic, and frequent lane changes, drivers must remain vigilant at all times. To stay safe on the roads, always practice defensive driving techniques, maintain a safe following distance, and use turn signals properly. Additionally, be aware of blind spots and give large commercial vehicles ample space. In the event of a side-swipe accident, it is crucial to gather as much evidence as possible, including photographs, witness statements, and police reports. Promptly contacting an experienced car accident attorney, such as those at Sally Morin Law, will ensure that your rights are protected and you receive the compensation you deserve.

Understanding Shoulder Injuries

Torn Rotator Cuff and Labral Tear Shoulder injuries, such as torn rotator cuffs and labral tears, can be incredibly painful and often require extensive medical treatment. The severity of such injuries can vary, depending on factors like the force of impact and pre-existing conditions. Treatment options may include physical therapy, medication, and in some cases, surgical intervention. Seeking immediate medical attention after a car accident is vital, even if symptoms may not be apparent initially. A thorough medical evaluation by a qualified healthcare professional will help diagnose any underlying injuries, allowing for early intervention and proper management.
