Darrigo, Diaz & Jimenez represented a Tampa couple who were the victims
of a reckless driver in North Carolina. There were several vehicles involved
in this crash, which was caused by a
DUI driver; his alcohol level was double the legal limits. Initially, the
clients did not seem to have serious injuries. However, both of them later
developed substantial injuries resulting from the impact.
The husband, a veteran, underwent subsequent shoulder surgery due to the
injuries sustained in this
auto accident. The wife had a fracture and injuries to her knee and hip which resulted
in extensive medical treatment and ultimately surgery. In addition, one
of the clients suffered mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI) which caused
vertigo, dizziness, loss of hearing, and balance problems. She was diagnosed
with Post-Concussion Syndrome.
As always, the
Darrigo, Diaz & Jimenez legal team fought arduously for fair compensation for their clients and continued
to pursue a higher settlement beyond the insurance companies’ initial
offerings, using their experience and sharp legal skills to optimize the
result. In fact, the DDJ legal team found additional coverage which the
carrier had failed to disclose at the beginning of the case. The vigorous
pursuit for justice rendered a just compensation of $1 million at mediation.
