Minor Child’s Injured Hand Results in Settlement

Recovery Amount: $100,000

18 month-old child under the supervision of a hired care-taker severed tendons in his small finger when left unattended in a room…

A young child, only 18 months old at the time, was left unattended for a period of time in a room with dangerous objects within his reach. While alone, the young child took hold of a picture frame and got his pinky finger caught between the glass and the frame, resulting in a severe laceration to his finger that was later determined to have severed two tendons. The young child underwent surgery in an effort to repair the severed tendons. The surgeon was able to restore one of the two severed tendons, allowing the young child to regain some use of his finger.

After the insurance company initially refused to pay an amount that would even cover the young child’s medical bills, the matter was placed into suit. Attorney Robert Tidwell effectively kept pressure on the insurance company utilizing various procedural tools that he learned during his 8 years of working as a trial attorney for two of the largest insurance companies in the United States. Shortly after filing the law suit, the insurance company agreed to pay the entire policy limit to settle the matter, $100,000.00. The young child’s health insurance company bombarded his parents with daily letters claiming to have a right to be reimbursed out of the proceeds of the law suit. Mr. Tidwell was able to convince the health insurer that, under Georgia law, they were not entitled to any of the proceeds of the settlement and the health insurer backed down, allowing the parents to retain the entirety of the settlement to use for the young child’s future.

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.
