FLC: Case of the Week--Personal Injury
Plaintiff, a collegiate basketball player, is sitting in her car studying for an exam in the parking lot of her school. Defendant, attempts to make a U-turn in the parking lot and runs into Plaintiff’s car causing a herniated disc in her lower back. Before the accident, Plaintiff was starting each and every game and had potential to make it professionally. After, she was only able to play a portion of each game and will likely never have a chance at playing in the pros.
Personal injury is more than just medical bills. Personal injury is pain, suffering, emotional anguish and loss of enjoyment. The insurance looks at this case as a small case because the bills are not substantial. However, FLC looks at this case as a case that warrants a fight.
When you lose an opportunity like this at the fault of another, you should be made whole, not just have your medical bills paid.
