A personal injury client from Conway, SC was rear-ended in a car accident on Hall Road near Highway 701. The client injured their neck and back and felt pain in their shoulder as well.
This client was a student who was attending classes and felt pain from carrying their books. Because of classes and student training, making all medical care appointments was difficult, and the at-fault driver's insurance company claimed a "gap in treatment."
For any person's case, a gap in treatment typically means an accident happened and then time passed before they received medical care. Often times, insurance companies attempt to downplay a victim's injuries if they were not able to afford, or get, prompt medical treatment. This also includes missing appointments throughout a client's scheduled treatments.
Attorney Kristie Shaw argued that because this client was a student, there was a difficulty in making every appointment during the school term. The insurance company would not budge, and The Derrick Law Firm filed suit.
