Our client was sitting at a light in Richmond Virginia when she was struck, head on, by an elderly driver who failed to control her car as she turned into our clients road.
She did not seek treatment immediately as she had to pick up her child at day care. She saw her doctor the next day, complaining of head pain and dizziness.
It was later determined that she had an orbital fracture which required surgery.
She contacted our office after the insurance adjuster offered to meet with her at a local restaurant to settle the case. She contacted a Richmond personal injury firm who offered to help her in return for a contingent fee of over 41%.
She retained our office, and, along with Richmond of counsel Bob Battle, we investigated the accident and negotiated with the insurance company. The case settled for $100,000 (the maximum insurance available.)
Because the case settled more than 90 days prior to trial our fee was 25% of the total recovery.
