A pedestrian was walking through a parking lot crosswalk at US Highway 17 and 38th Ave North in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina when he was hit by an SUV. It was a low speed accident, however, the man was taken by Fire Rescue to the ER for his injuries.
The victim complained of pain to his shoulder, neck, back, and head. He was treated by the ER physicians and had no other follow up treatment.
Not knowing how to proceed and to make sure his medical bills were covered, the victim called Myrtle Beach Accident Attorneys at The Derrick Law Firm to evaluate and settle his case.
After becoming a client, Attorney Kevin Mulet and staff collected the victim's medical records and bills to determine the value of his case. Challenges associated with this case arose from it being a low impact parking lot case. These types of cases are more difficult because you must prove the impact was great enough to create the injuries claimed. Medical bills are not typically very high either. This client was also in need of money and requested to end the case as quickly as possible.
Attorney Mulet sent a demand to the liability insurance carrier and was able to settle for half of the policy limits which satisfied the client's medical bills.
While this client was very satisfied and gave The Derrick Law Firm a 5 Star Review, most cases we take and evaluate have extensive injuries and high medical bills. By settling a case quickly, clients don't often get the full value of their case. Accident Attorneys at The Derrick Law Firm investigate and evaluate every insurance policy available, the facts of the case, and the value of the case before sending a demand to an insurance company.
