Recovery Amount: $250,000
After being injured in a car wreck where his pickup truck was struck from behind by another truck, our client did what many people do; he called an attorney he saw on TV. He tells us that if this attorney can afford to have so many commercials, and to be on the back of MARTA buses, he must be good at his job. Unfortunately, this client’s case was a little complicated. Shortly after the wreck, he began to experience severe pain in his hips. X-rays of his hip shortly after the wreck did not reveal any significant injury. However, the pain became worse over time. After a few months, another image was taken of his hip revealing the client was experiencing necrosis in the bones of his hip. This young man now required a total hip replacement. What made his case so difficult is that the necrosis was so far along that it appeared to have started before the wreck. After a year of no answers or assistance from the TV law firm, this client decided to fire that firm and hire Tidwell Strimban Injury Lawyers.
Attorney Aaron Strimban quickly met with the client’s surgeon in an effort to gain a better understanding of how the wreck affected our client’s hip. The surgeon felt comfortable writing a medical narrative, which is basically a letter outlining the client’s injury and why the surgeon felt the wreck had an impact in progressing the necrosis of our client’s hip. Armed with this information, Attorney Strimban delivered a settlement demand package to the at-fault driver’s car insurance company. The evidence was sufficient to convince the insurance company to pay their policy limits of $250,000.00 to settle our client’s case. Our client was thrilled.
For an entire year, our client suffered significant pain while he needed hip replacement surgery. Nothing was done on his behalf. Within just a few months of hiring Tidwell Strimban Injury Lawyers, his case was settled and he received the funds he needed to have his hip replacement surgery.
