F.R., a 25-year old male, received an $8,500 settlement after sustaining back and neck soft tissue injuries after car accidents resulting from an improper lane change.

The Scene

On April 30, 2016, F.R. was driving a 2012 Honda Civic with his wife in the passenger seat. They were traveling eastbound in the number two lane on Chandler Boulevard approaching Dobson Road in Chandler, Arizona. F.R. signaled to change lanes into the number 3 lane so he could make a right hand turn onto southbound Dobson Road.

Before he was able to change lanes however, the at-fault driver changed from the number 3 lane into the lane F.R. was traveling in, colliding with F.R.’s vehicle and causing heavy damage.

Chandler Police Department responded to the accident and conducted an investigation. Chandler Police interviewed F.R. and the at-fault driver.

The at-fault driver told the police that because he was talking to his passenger he made the lane change without properly looking. The at-fault driver was cited as a result of the investigation.

Neither vehicle needed to be towed from the scene as both vehicles were still able to be driven. F.R. and his wife refused medical care at the scene of the auto accident.

Applicable Law

The at-fault driver received a citation for violating ARS 28-729.1 unsafe lane usage. “A person shall drive a vehicle as nearly as practicable entirely within a single lane. He shall not move the vehicle from that lane until the driver has first ascertained that the movement can be made with safety.”

Initial Injuries

Four days after the collision, as F.R.’s pain and discomfort persisted. He presented to AZ Spine Disc and Sport where he got treatment for his soft tissue injury after car accident:

  1. muscle strain of the fascia and tendon at the neck
  2. sprain of ligaments of the cervical spine
  3. strain of muscle and tendon of back wall
  4. sprain of ligaments of the thoracic spine
  5. strain of muscle and tendon of front wall
  6. sprain of ribs
  7. strain of muscle and tendon of lower back
  8. sprain of ligaments of lumbar spine
  9. other muscle spasms
  10. segmental and somatic dysfunction of the cervical spine
  11. segmental and somatic dysfunction of the thoracic spine
  12. segmental and somatic dysfunction of the ribs
  13. segmental and somatic dysfunction of the lumbar spine segmental and somatic dysfunction of the pelvis.

Soft Tissue Injury After Car Accident: Treatment and Medical Expenses

AZ Spine Disc and Sport treated F.R.’s soft tissue injury after car accident with chiropractic manipulative treatment with therapeutic modalities such as chiropractic manipulations, hot/ice packs, myofascial release, electric muscle stimulation, massage, trigger point therapy, and therapeutic exercises.

F.R. was treated with AZ Spine Disc and Sport for a total of 12 visits over five weeks.

F.R.’s medical bills totaled $2,112.50.

Additional Losses

As a full-time employee, F.R. made a claim for lost wages in the amount of $594. F.R. was forced to take time off from his job due to pain resulting from the auto accident and in order to receive necessary treatment for his injuries. F.R. claimed lost wages for a period of one month.

Insurance Involvement

F.R. did not use health insurance while treating for the injuries he sustained in this accident.

F.R. had car insurance through Kemper Insurance, but the policy was liability only. The policy, therefore, did not seek additional compensation as a result of this accident.

The at-fault driver got Geico Casualty Company’s insurance. Geico accepted full liability for this auto accident.

Soft Tissue Injury After Car Accident: Conclusion and Compensation

F.R.’s total settlement was $8,500. He was satisfied with the results of this case and the services of Phoenix Injury and Accident Law Firm.

He was able to have his vehicle repaired and receive the medical treatment necessary to return him to the state of wellness he was in prior to the accident. F.R. received compensation for the time he had to take off work.

He ultimately received around $3,000 for his bodily injuries in this settlement, the balance paying his medical bills and lawyer’s fees and costs. The value of F.R.’s settlement was diminished by the limited amount of treatment he sought and the amount of time he waited to seek treatment.

I was in an accident that resulted in getting whiplash and a concussion. I contacted Phoenix Accident and Injury Law Firm that day. Everyone was helpful (Rhea, Karissa, and Jeff) from the very beginning to the very end. They sent me to a physical therapy location that was pretty far away but the doctor and physical therapist were very kind so I did make the trek. They handled all aspects of my case in a timely manner and answered all my questions. They got the max amount possible, and from that, paid the medical bills and took their fair cut. I would not hesitate to recommend them to family or friends.

I would give ten stars if I could. This law firm is about as professional and friendly as it gets!! They stayed in constant contact with me and answered every question I had. I got a settlement that was higher than I expected and will definitely use this law firm again. I highly recommend hiring them to handle your legal issues!!

These guys were absolutely amazing. They were very clear with me about what I needed to do on my end and I saw fast results. I just recommended them to a friend a week ago and he also dealt with my mother's case. I wouldn't see anyone else.
