Berenson Injury Law Succeeds in Tough Fort Worth Truck Accident Lawsuit
Joe was driving his 18-wheeler on Interstate 35 in Fort Worth when another 18-wheeler bumped his trailer on the right rear side as he changed lanes. Property damage to his trailer was very minor, as you can see. The driver was in pain and asked to be taken to a hospital by ambulance. There he was checked out and released with the typical diagnosis of a soft tissue injury to his neck and low back.
This happened two years ago today (Halloween) early in the morning. Joe hired our personal injury law firm when he rightfully suspected he would be tricked (not treated) by the other driver’s insurance company.
Mr. Berenson met with Joe and immediately got to work. He and his staff investigated the scene and his vehicle and got the evidence they needed.
Mr. Berenson helped the man get the medical treatment he needed, knowing that his client’s back was hurt more seriously than originally diagnosed. Later, after physical therapy and a series of epidural steroid injections failed to alleviate the pain, a surgeon confirmed that the driver needed lumbar surgery. Our firm guaranteed its cost because Joe did not have any health insurance. He had the surgery.
Mr. Berenson quickly gave all of the Personal Injury Protection benefits and interest-free loans to his client and checked in on him regularly to see how he was feeling and to update him on case developments.
Our client naturally did not want to go through the court process and testify in a trial if he didn’t have to. Berenson Injury Law filed a lawsuit when the 18 wheeler’s insurance company refused to make a reasonable offer of settlement. It claimed that based on the small amount of property damage and a previous injury to our client’s back and his age, this collision was not the sole cause of his lumbar pain.
Mr. Berenson was able to force a favorable settlement by proving that the truck driver was unqualified and poorly trained. He convinced the insurance company representatives and attorneys that the very small company owned by the other driver’s brother never should have hired him and that the crash caused our client to have back surgery.
Mr. Berenson was able to obtain seven times the amount of the insurance company’s first offer. He also put a lot more money in Joe’s bank account by drastically cutting his medical bills and his fees and expenses. As a result, Joe received a total of $171,243 after all of his bills were paid off – almost half of the total recovery. In many cases like these, the injured person receives little, if any, money.
