Personal Injury Attorney | Allen Flatt Ballidis & Leslie Blog
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.
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.
