As a result of the accident, Derrick injured his neck, back, and shoulders (left shoulder tear and right shoulder derangement). He experienced pain in his shoulders and upper back with stiffness in his neck. He had difficulty with twisting and turning his neck, bending forward, sitting, standing, and walking for a prolonged period of time. He complained of weakness in his arms and legs with numbness and tingling in his feet. Even with physical therapy three times a week and a stern warning of no heavy lifting, Derrick was required to undergo pain management injections. For approximately two months, Derrick was unable to go to work. To this day, he continues to do a home exercise program and feels independent again.
Derrick heard The Case Handler team on 93.5 FM radio and saved our number! Our team jumped into action and we successfully recovered $95,000.00 from the defendant’s insurance company plus his loss wages! “Matthew is a good attorney and good guy,” he boasted. “I’m going to recommend him all the time,” he said.
