Personal Injury (Blindness); Vehicles
A woman was blinded when her optic nerve was severely damaged after she was struck by an automobile in a private stadium parking lot. She was referred to the Firm by her employer. The driver's insurance carrier denied her claim, asserting that the nerve damage was not caused by the accident. The woman retained the Firm to represent her, and the Firm hired the medical experts to prove the causation issue. As a result, the insurer settled the matter and paid the total amount of the negligent driver's insurance policy. The Firm settled this case through direct negotiations with the insurance company and without the necessity or expense of filing suit.
