A car was driving down US Highway 17 in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina near Church Street when it decided to change lanes and clipped the car ahead, sending it into another vehicle.
The middle car sustained such a hit that glass and debris were everywhere, including glass in the driver's eye. The driver was taken to the hospital where doctors determined they had torn their rotator cuff. The driver also complained of pain in the neck, ribs, chest, and back. Surgery was required for the torn rotator cuff.
The victim came to The Derrick Law Firm for advice and help with the accident. We took the case and began collecting all evidence to build the strongest case possible for our client. Myrtle Beach Personal Injury Attorney Kristie Shaw evaluated all the medical records and medical bills and made a demand for settlement to the insurance company.
Our client's case was settled for just under the full policy limits of the at-fault driver's insurance policy for $145,000.
