Angela was driving one day when the car in front of her suddenly hit the brakes. Even though Angela managed to initially avoid hitting this car, a third car ran into the back of Angela, forcing her into the lead car. After the accident, Angela noticed she was having trouble with her neck, down her spine and also with headaches. The doctors all said that she should be fine with fairly minor treatment and that with time everything should get better. Unfortunately, Angela was not so lucky. After years of ongoing pains and difficulties Angela decided to follow up with her doctors and with further investigations it was found that she actually required major surgery to her spine. The operation helped but was not a complete fix. Angela was mostly concerned about being able to start a family and being able to work long-term.
Angela contacted our firm years after her accident and had never really spoken to any lawyers at all before. We were able to guide her through the process and let her know that it was not too late for her to pursue her claim. We acted quickly to move her claim ahead with the TAC and secured her a serious injury certificate within months of opening her file. We flagged this as a matter that could hopefully resolve early, without the need to go to Court and the TAC agreed. Following a productive conference, we were able to secure lump sum compensation of $300,000 for Angela for her pain and suffering and for the chance that she would have to work some reduced hours in the future.
Actual Client Testimonial
I had an accident in 2008, I was sandwiched between 2 cars and had severe whiplash. Since the accident I was always in terrible pain around my neck and down my spine. Doctors kept telling me it is only a muscular pain. As time went on the pain only got worse. The pain was affecting my life, I struggled to preform everyday tasks, work and social activities became harder or impossible. I was sent for a MRI and they found that my discs were indenting into my spine. Surgery was required immediately. I was not sure if i should seek legal advice as It had been such a long since the accident. I thought no one could help me. I contacted a few law firms via email and Henry Carus got back to me the next morning. Jen Cron called me explaining the process and kept reassuring me she can get all documents submitted in time, they listened to my concerns and took me seriously. Within only a few months, they had all my documents submitted to TAC. The staff at Henry Carus have been so helpful, friendly and easy to approach. My outcome was successful, I was glad I chose Henry Carus. With their enthusiastic staff, commitment and perseverance, I achieved the best possible outcome. I will strongly recommend Henry Carus and associate to anyone that needs legal advice. They really can make what may seem impossible, possible!!
