Local San Diego man is rushed to University of California San Diego (UCSD) Burn Unit following a car wreck...
San Diego Car Collision Attorney Mark C. Blane represented a San Diego man who was not injured by the initial collision of vehicles when the car he was in as a passenger was involved in a car accident. His injuries came from a vehicle fire that broke out in the hood of the car going through the fire wall/dash area of the vehicle. He sustained first degree burns to his legs, and second degree burns to his nose and left hand.
Although he treated for only 3 visits with burn doctors, and his medical bills came to $23,126.12, Mr. Blane was successful in obtaining a $65,000.00 settlement, and negotiating down his medical liens to $14,500.00. The medical bills were covered by a private health plan known as Aetna, and Mr. Blane was able to argue fairness and equity under California law to negotiate down the pay back lien to the health provider. The client received $30,126.00 in his net recovery, and he recovered in full from his injuries with no permanent scarring. A very successful case, and another reason to have good health insurance protecting you.
