Fractured Vertebrae, Chronic Pain
We recovered over $800,000.00 for Our Client
Our client, KB, suffered fractured vertebrae in his back when he was rear ended by a car at a red light. He had surgery to fuse the vertebrae and made a good physical recovery but developed chronic pain and psychological issues. He was not working at the time of the accident, but we were still able to recover over $800,000.00 at mediation for pain and suffering, future loss of income and medical and rehabilitation costs for him.
Traumatic Brain Injury
Entitled to over $2,000,000.00 in care benefits plus recovered over $300,000.00 compensation including $60,000.00 for family
ML was a retired gentleman who suffered a severe brain injury as well as soft tissue injuries to his back in a car accident. He was able to live at home but required substantial long term attendant care and rehabilitation including speech therapy, physiotherapy as well as home modifications. We were successful in establishing that his injuries were catastrophic which meant that he was entitled to $1,000,000.00 in medical and rehabilitation expenses and another $1,000,000.00 in attendant care expenses from his own insurance company. This means that his needs for medical, rehabilitation and attendant care will be provided for life. We were also able to recover a further $300,000.00 from the other driver’s insurance company for pain and suffering, attendant care and compensation for his family members.
Chronic Pain/Psychological Trauma
$1,000,000.00 Recovered, and a Fresh Start
SL suffered minor soft tissue injuries to her neck and back when her car was struck from behind by another car. However, she soon developed severe psychological symptoms that impaired her cognitive functions including memory, executive function and speech, which prevented her from returning to her clerical job. She also developed a chronic pain syndrome. We were able to obtain medical reports that helped to prove that her psychological symptoms were genuine that she really would not be capable of working for the foreseeable future. We recovered over $1,000,000,00 for her for pain and suffering, medical, rehabilitation and housekeeping expenses. Since we settled her case she has been able to purchase a new family home and has begun re-training for a new career.
