Elderly Woman Breaks Back in Car Accident

An elderly woman was rear ended in a car accident in the Myrtle Beach area. She went to the ER complaining about her back hurting.

She was seen and told the soreness would go away after a few days. Because she was an older woman, she assumed her pain was attached to her age.

Several weeks later, still complaining about back pain, she was admitted to the hospital for another issue. She told them of her continued back pain and they did an x-ray to find that she had a fractured spine that was caused by the impact of the car accident.

She was then sent to a nursing facility for a month to receive around the clock care including physical therapy to strengthen her back.

This woman was able to fully recover, and The Derrick Law Firm was able to prove her damages and settle her case for the full liability policy limits.
