$200,000 Settlement for Gwinnett County Resident with Pre-Existing Injuries

Our client, a Gwinnett County resident, was travelling down the highway when a large SUV improperly changed lanes and struck the passenger side of our client’s vehicle. The violent impact from this collision caused our client’s left shoulder to slam into the driver’s door. Our client immediately felt left shoulder pain and low back pain. After being evaluated by paramedics at the scene, our client was transported to the emergency room.

The investigating officer determined that the driver of the large SUV was at fault for the collision and issued that driver a citation for improper lane change. Both vehicles sustained moderate damage and were towed from the scene.

After being discharged from the ER, our client continued to experience left shoulder and low back pain and was eventually diagnosed with a recurrent disc protrusion which was compressing the S1 nerve root and a left shoulder rotator cuff tear. Our client’s doctors ordered low back epidural steroid injections and physical therapy for the left shoulder and low back pain. Unfortunately, the conservative treatment failed and our client’s doctors recommended surgery. Follow the doctor’s medical advice, our client underwent a left shoulder surgery to repair the rotator cuff and a decompression and fusion surgery on their lower back.

We filed a lawsuit against the SUV driver, as the driver who caused the accident and caused our client’s left shoulder and low back injuries. The SUV driver obtained an attorney and denied causing the accident, despite receiving a traffic citation from the investigating officer and paying the fine. In the course of the lawsuit, we took the SUV driver’s deposition and, after many questions about how the accident happened, they eventually admitted to making an error while driving and causing the collision with our client.

Even though the deposition resolved the liability issue, the SUV driver and his attorneys also denied causing our client’s injuries, specifically claiming that the low back injury pre-existed the collision. They pointed at two pre-wreck low back surgeries undergone by our client and hundreds of pages of medical records where our client complained of low back pain before the collision.

We analyzed those same medical records from before the wreck and, most importantly, compared MRI films taken before the collision with those taken afterwards to find objective evidence. Next, we talked with our client’s doctors about the cause of our client’s injuries and how our client’s low back condition was aggravated or further injured in the collision.

Our client’s doctors agreed and opined to a reasonable degree of medical certainty that the left shoulder injury was caused exclusively by the collision and the low back injury was aggravated to the point of requiring surgical intervention by the collision. In spite of the defense that our client was not injured by the wreck, we were able to use the evidence contained in our client’s medical records and the testimony from the doctors to negotiate a settlement with the insurance company for the full policy limits of $200,000.

We work tirelessly to obtain the best possible result for our clients. Your pre-existing injury is not a free pass for an at-fault driver. Not every case is “perfect” but we have the experience necessary to work through those issues and get our clients the recovery they need.
