|Injuries||Auto Collision, Elbow|
M. Blake Heath recently obtained a $150,000.00 settlement for a client who was injured in a Kansas car crash. The client injured his elbow, and he started experiencing nerve issues shortly after the crash which led to numbness in his hands. Unfortunately, the client needed surgery to release his ulnar nerve to correct the nerve issues.
In Kansas, insurance companies attempt to focus on paid medical expenses when analyzing claims. In this case, there were approximately $33,112.92 in paid medical expenses.
But a car crash can have a devastating impact on the victim’s life, and the medical expenses only reflect a small part of what has been taken from a client. In this particular case, the client was an avid wood worker. The injury to his elbow and ulnar nerve prevented the client form doing something he loved.
Mr. Heath focused on the impact the crash had on the client’s life beyond medical expenses. This included photographs of different woodworking projects.
This case is a great example of how a personal injury attorney can position a case early on to maximize a client’s recovery.
Past results afford no guarantee of future results and every case is different and must be judged on its own merits.
