In 2016, a head-on collision left our client unconscious and with serious injuries.
When a truck pulled out in front of our client, failing to yield the right of way, the at-fault driver hit our client head-on in their convertible car. The crash scalped our client's head, among other serious lacerations, and our client lost consciousness.
Our client not only sustained a traumatic brain injury from the accident but also fractured her right foot. The foot injury required surgery and caused a small future impairment rating of the foot.
With extremely high medical bills and the extent of the injuries, our client knew she needed an experienced Myrtle Beach Personal Injury Attorney to help get all the medical bills paid.
After hiring accident lawyers at The Derrick Law Firm, a full investigation of the accident and evaluation of the medical records were conducted. Accident Attorney Kevin Mulet determined the value of the case and sent demands to the at-fault driver's insurance company.
The Derrick Law Firm was able to get our client the full policy limits of the liability insurance at $50,000 as well as the full policy limits of our client's Underinsured Motorist Insurance (UIM) coverage at $100,000. Because our client's medical bills exceeded the liability and UIM policy amounts and an excess liability policy was found, Attorney Mulet settled another policy claim for our client at $300,000. The entire case was settled for a total amount of $450,000.
Every member of The Derrick Law Firm works to complete a thorough investigation of our clients' accidents and to obtain every insurance policy available. Voted Best Attorney by the readers of the Horry Independent and the Myrtle Beach Herald, The Derrick Law Firm's goal is to treat you like family and obtain the full value on your case.
