Motor Vehicle Accident | Allen Flatt Ballidis & Leslie Blog
Sometimes it just takes “rolling up our shirt sleeves” to uncover favorable evidence for our clients’ when 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.
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.
