Carl and his wife Margaret were driving home when a car turned in front of them. Carl was 87 at the time of his accident with many age related health conditions, but still able to travel about and drive his car. As a result of his accident, he and Margaret were injured. We were able to quickly obtain a serious injury certificate for Margaret who had suffered a fractured cervical spine. We were, however, faced with challenges in obtaining one for Carl.
Carl’s principal injury was to his left shoulder, but he had longstanding difficulties with his right shoulder and lower back. We were able to show that, regardless of the longstanding difficulties, Carl still had suffered a serious injury to his left shoulder, and its consequences had limited his enjoyment of life.We did this within two years of the date of accident. On the eve of Carl turning 90 years old, we obtained him a settlement that gave him $77,000 for his pain and suffering.
Actual Client Testimonial
The entire dealing was a pleasant surprise as I had no expectation of getting near a settlement. Fortunately, Henry went to great pains to explain clearly the process involved. Especially as someone with hearing aids, this is something I appreciated. I have had back pain for 20 years, which complicated matters but Henry found a way around it. Here I am at 89 years old and I got my settlement because I have the best solicitors in the world – Henry Carus + Associates!
