Avoid Social Media Posting During A Claim

By Allen Flatt Ballidis & Leslie on August 12, 2022

At Allen Flatt Ballidis & Leslie, a personal injury law firm in Newport Beach, CA, we recently represented a client who was injured in a motor vehicle accident and sustained an injury to his back. Our client was an avid cyclist, who regularly enjoyed hiking and other outdoor activities, but he was unable to work for an extended period and had many months of medical care. Unfortunately, he did not make a full recovery from his back injury, and he claimed he was unable to participate in previous and normal outdoor activities.

This client’s case did not settle outside the courts, so our experienced attorneys filed a lawsuit against the adverse party. During litigation the defense counsel, on behalf of the insurance company, did a thorough investigation of our client.

Going the Extra Mile Leads to Best Personal Injury Case Outcome

By Allen Flatt Ballidis & Leslie on May 18, 2022

Sometimes it just takes “rolling up our shirt sleeves” to uncover favorable evidence for our clientswhen they have been involved in a personal injury incident. For example, our office recently settled a case for a client referred to as “C.R.” who was involved in a motor vehicle accident, when another driver ran a red light and broadsided her vehicle. The reason this accident occurred, according to the opposing driver, was that our client C.R. ran the red light. However, there were no independent witnesses in this situation, and the police were unable to determine which driver was at fault.

The adverse insurance carrier denied C.R.’s property damage claim, arguing that the accident was C.R.’s fault. Following the accident, our client was left without the use of her car and an outstanding loan on the vehicle. In addition to her property damage, C.R. sustained injuries that required emergency medical treatment, follow-up, and ongoing medical attention.

Excellent Outcome for Vehicle Accident Injury

At Allen Flatt Ballidis and Leslie, a personal injury law firm located in Newport Beach, CA, we were recently referred a female client who had been injured in a motor vehicle accident, and who had a long history of back issues.

Following her accident, our client contacted her physician to set up an appointment and they refused to see her since her increased back pain was due to a motor vehicle accident. Having received zero support from her own doctor who she turned to, she then contacted another physician and omitted telling them that her back injury was related to her accident. This second physician, and many others who treated our client along the way, recommended she have a very necessary back surgery. On a related note and during the last several years, our attorneys are finding these types of situations are becoming more common in the medical field, considering many physicians no longer want to “be involved” in medical legal cases.
