What happens if you re-injure your back in a Rhode Island car accident? In today’s blog, I am going to share a recent personal injury case win involving such a fact pattern!
Coventry, Rhode Island Car Accident With Personal Injuries
One day in Coventry Rhode Island a careless driver slammed into our client’s car, causing big damage to the car and immediate back injuries.
Our client was a 63 year old man who had a history of chronic back pain that had resulted in a back surgery several years earlier. Notably, since that back surgery (and up until the day of this car accident), the surgery was a success and our client was able to live his life relatively pain free.
But in the aftermath of the crash, our client’s back felt on fire. He obtained emergency medical care and saw his doctor who suggested a course of physical therapy.
Soon, when the relief did not come, he returned to his surgeon from several years before the car accident.
Unfortunately, an MRI ordered by the surgeon discovered that the hardware placed into his spine during the past surgery had loosened!
The surgeon explained that our client would now – because of the damage form the car accident – require a revision surgery to repair the damaged hardware in his spine!
At the Bottaro Law Firm, LLC, we were there for our client as he was forced to go through another surgery due to this driver’s carelessness. Our team came together to help manage his case, deal with forms, medical bills, and get his case investigated and prosecuted the right way.
How Much Is Back Surgery Car Accident Case Worth? Bottaro Wins!
Insurance companies are quick to attack prior medical conditions, and with our decades of experience, we knew to detail out the medical chronology of our client to show that his most recent injuries were due to the crash.
The prior laminectomy surgery would have likely protected him for years. Clearly, there was no reason he would have needed this second surgery but for the careless driver’s negligence.
We put to together the case, carefully countering the big insurance company’s attempts to deny and delay justice. At the end of the day, I am proud to say that we were able to recover a $150,000.00 settlement!
