I just had the pleasure of meeting with one of my clients to deliver his settlement check after settling his case against an 18-wheeler driver who rear ended him. I fought to get him a huge settlement and he was obviously very pleased with the results.
This is a picture of my client being treated by paramedics at the scene.
My client was at a complete stop in heavy traffic on North Freeway when out of nowhere, a huge tractor-trailer smashed into the back of his small car. He had to be rushed to the emergency room by ambulance and performed physical therapy for about a month after his wreck.
Fortunately, he did not sustain any major threatening injuries, but I was still able to make the insurance company pay him a lot of money. I threatened to file a lawsuit after their insulting first offer and made them increase their offer substantially.
