Berenson Injury Law resolved a broken nose and injured neck case for $205,000. The Fort Worth car accident happened in April of last year when a pickup truck rear ended a woman’s Mini Cooper.
She was rushed to the hospital and underwent nasal surgery several weeks later.
Some of her medical bills were paid by her health insurance, which creates a valuation problem when a personal injury lawyer is attempting to settle the claim or argue the case to a judge and jury. The total amount that can be awarded for medical bills is lessened by the “paid vs. incurred statute” and Escobedo decision from the Supreme Court.
