Settlement: $400,000

In August of 2016, Ryan E. Wind’s client, was involved in a collision when the defendant driver disregarded a red light in the Short Pump area. The client did not seek medical attention at first, but a few days later followed up with his family doctor for left hip pain. Two months after the collision the client was referred to physical therapy and attended a few sessions over the next few weeks.

The client, who is an attorney, found it difficult to take off time to attend physical therapy, so he stopped going and did the exercises at home. The client’s hip continued to give him problems, but he did not receive any other treatment until a year after the collision when he saw an orthopedic doctor. At that time the client reached out to the Allen Law Firm and Ryan for assistance.

The client’s hip continued to get worse and in July of 2018, almost two years after the collision, he had a total hip replacement. Relating the hip surgery to the injury suffered in the collision was tough, but the treating surgeon opined the surgery was a result of the injury sustained in the collision.

The case was set for a two-day trial in Henrico County, but settled a month before trial for $400,000.
