Car Accident Settlement Secured for Ohio Woman Who Suffered Multiple Injuries Allegedly Due to Car Accident
The Ohio auto accident attorneys at The Cochran Firm-Ohio were able to secure a confidential car accident settlement, without litigation, for a woman who suffered multiple injuries allegedly due to an I-75 Ohio car accident.
According to The Cochran Firm – Ohio’s investigation of the Ohio accident on behalf of the victim lead to the car accident settlement. A driver traveling southbound on I-75 collided with the victim, spinning her vehicle several times and causing it to strike a dividing wall before finally coming to rest. As a result of the auto/car accident, the victim was taken to a local hospital where she was diagnosed with a right shoulder strain. In the days following the accident, the victim suffered continued pain and discomfort in her neck, back, shoulder, and arm pain.
Because of her personal injury pain, the victim sought treatment at a local medical center. X-rays showed the victim had a loss of cervical curvature secondary to cervical myospasm with signs of cervical ligament instability. Following an MRI, the victim was found to have a left paracentral disc herniation involving C5-C6, resulting in left hemicord effacement with cord flattened contour alteration.
With continuing complaints of headaches, neck pain, upper and lower back pain and a tingling sensations in her left arm, the victim started treatment at a chiropractic and rehabilitation center where she was diagnosed with muscle hypertonicity in the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar regions with swelling.
Due to the pain, the victim was allegedly forced to seek treatments for more than eight months. While her physician felt that surgery was needed to improve the pain and limited mobility the victim was experiencing in her cervical spine and shoulder, financial constraints had left her unable to continue treatment and undergo surgery.
However, the Ohio car accident lawyers at The Cochran Firm-Ohio were able to secure a confidential settlement from the negligent party for the victim to compensate her for her injuries, continued pain and suffering, and significant medical expenses.
