Involved in Rhode Island or Massachusetts car accidents, where medical expenses outweigh the at-fault party’s insurance? Afraid you will end up having to pay out of pocket for these expenses. In today’s blog, I want to recount a recent $107,000.00 settlement in which our client’s medical expenses exceeded the at-fault party’s policy limit.
What To Do After A Rhode Island Car Accident With Knee Injury (Meniscus Tear)?
Our client is a decorated military veteran and father of two.
As he was headed to Our Lady of Grace in Johnston, RI. As he exited Route 6 to proceed north on Killingly ST., he yielded to oncoming traffic at the end of the off-ramp.
At Providence Veteran’s Hospital, the doctor ordered x-rays and an MRI of our client’s knee.
Traveling in the same direction as our client, the at-fault driver made no attempt to slow as he exited the freeway. Suddenly, and without warning, the at-fault driver slammed into the rear of our client’s vehicle.
The immediate collision resulted in multiple personal injuries to our client’s knee’s head, and chest.
The MRI came back showing our client suffered a tear of the medial meniscus. Treatments of Kenalog and Bupivicaione injections along with months of physical therapy failed to relieve his pain. Doctors determined that right knee arthroscopy with partial medial meniscectomy and chondroplasty surgery was the best course of action. Unfortunately, this would leave our client with permanent scarring.
