San Diego California Lady Injured in Slip and Fall Accident Inside a Store

 

San Diego Slip and Fall Accident & Injury Lawyer Mark C. Blane represented a local San Diego lady in a slip and fall accident which resulted in a permanent impairment.  Mr. Blane successfully used this medical evidence to help the injured lady.  The following is an actual excerpt in his demand package that used to get a great result:
 
"Facts have been previously stipulated; my client was seriously injured when she slipped on a prior water spill near the cash register section of your insured.  We have previously sent you an independent witness statement that verifies the stipulated facts. My injured client was treated immediately, on the day of the accident, at Scripps Hospital.  She received diagnostics, medication, and then was released.  She followed up with Dr. Kent Kerras, D.C., and was eventually referred to Dr. Brent Pratley, M.D. for an orthopedic evaluation, and the Lakes Urgent Care (Dr. Joy Emmanuel-Cochran, D.O.) for evaluation.  She ended care with Dr. Kent Kerras, D.C., due to geographic location, and continued with Dr. Samila Hifai, D.C. for myofascial release therapy, and electrical stimulation.  She attended pain management therapy with Dr. Michael Moon, M.D. and underwent one lumbar steroid injection.  

 

Accordingly, you should enter into your analysis that Ms. Jackson‘s duration of treatment with a Medical Doctor was 5 months, and 11 days.

This Slip and Fall accident delayed my injured client's ability to complete her degree program in Respiratory Therapy.  She was a student at the time of this accident (thus no wage loss), but her duties as a student were severely impaired and delayed.  Appropriate “severity points” should be assigned based on “duties under duress” per the therapy chart notes enclosed herein.

To this successful end, Mr. Blane used the medical findings as his boxing gloves on this slip and fall case - fortunately, it was enough to help settle this injured lady's injury case, and she was able to obtain a sizable net recovery.
