59 Year-Old Man Injured In T-Bone Car Wreck Settles

Recovery Amount: $220,000

A 59 year old man with significant arthritis in his neck prior to the collision obtained a $220,000.00 settlement prior to filing suit…

A 59 year old man with a history of arthritis in his neck and lower back was involved in a T-bone car wreck in Marietta, Georgia. The driver of the other car ran a red light and struck the client’s pickup truck on the driver’s side door at a high rate of speed. The client chose not to go the emergency room out of fear that he could not afford the ambulance ride or the treatment that he would have received in the ER. Further complicating this case was the fact that the client was involved in a significant rear-end collision, resulting in injuries to his lower back, just one year earlier. In fact, the client was on his way home from a doctor who was treating his lower back injuries when this wreck occurred.

Despite the client’s financial situation, he was able to obtain the treatment he needed for his neck pain under an agreement that his doctors would be paid after the case was resolved. Eventually, the client underwent a surgery known as a 3-level cervical diskectomy and fusion. Essentially, the three vertebral discs in his neck that were injured in the wreck, and were “pinching” the nerves that run from your spinal cord through your arms and into your hands, were removed and replaced with synthetic disks that allowed the nerve roots enough space to pass through without pain. The surgery was a huge success, alleviating all of the neck pain and the numbness he had experienced in his arms and hands. At the end of the day, this client was able to fully recover from his neck injury even though he did not have medical insurance to cover the costs of his treatment.

Highly recommed Tidwell Strimban

In October 2015 my wife was a pedestrian struck by a vehicle in a crosswalk in front of a grocery store. She suffered multiple injuries including a traumatic brain injury from which she has yet to fully recover. We were referred to the Tidwell Strimban law firm after the insurance company made a very small settlement offer. It took over two years to reach a settlement 3 weeks before the case was scheduled to go to court. Robert and Aaron recognized the seriousness of the injuries and were very diligent in pursuing our claim to a satisfactory conclusion. WE would also note that the staff, Donna and Ashley are extremely good at keeping us informed at all times. We do not hesitate to highly recommend them for any personal injury matter.

Mr. Tidwell and his staff are great people to deal with.  He was the first attorney I have ever had to use.  If I ever need to use an attorney again he will definitely be my go to guy.  When I had a question about something his staff was always there.  So if you are needing an attorney, Robert Tidwell is the guy to use.
