A client was driving South on US Highway 17 near South Fraser Street in Georgetown County. While the client was stopped in traffic, they were rear-ended and pushed into the car ahead.
Our client complained of pain in the neck and shoulders and was treated for the neck injury. This included a MRI.
A challenge presented in this case was that the client had pre-existing injuries. Personal Injury Attorney Kevin Mulet was able to show the client had not treated for those injuries in some time and the accident aggravated those injuries, creating the need for treatment and medication.
After a thorough investigation of the accident and all medical records and bills, The Derrick Law Firm settled the case for 2x the amount of our client's medical bills. The case settled for the full policy limits of $25,000.
