A woman was driving near US Highway 501 and Carolina Forest Boulevard in Myrtle Beach, SC when a car failed to yield the right of way and turned in front of her. This accident caused significant property damage to the vehicles and forced the victim to seek medical treatment after the wreck.
After the shock and adrenaline from the accident subsided, the victim realized the pain she was in and went to Conway Medical Center ER to be evaluated by a doctor. She complained of pain to her right shoulder, right leg, right knee, and her chest. The doctor advised her that if the pain continued to follow up with a primary care physician. After following her discharge instructions, she went to her primary doctor to get a second look at her injuries.This started a 6 month journey of treatment that included scans, tests, two orthopedists appointments, and multiple steroid injections to her knee area.
During the woman's treatment, she came to The Derrick Law Firm because she needed a Myrtle Beach Car Accident Attorney to help her get her claim resolved. The challenges with this client's case started when the at-fault driver's insurance company denied liability in the accident. Accident Attorney Kristie Shaw worked the case and was able to prove liability through various independent eye witnesses. After proving liability, the firm still had to prove that her injuries and damages were related to the accident because the insurance company continued to challenge them in relation to the accident.
The Derrick Law Firm filed suit against the insurance carrier and after a year of litigation, were able to settle the client's case for three times the amount of the original offer.
