Negligence case settles for $100,000.00

The Law Office of Keith Short recently settled a case for a client who suffered a spinal injury due to the alleged negligence of a repairman. The client received nearly $100,000.00.  We really had to build a case for this client.  Diagnostic films taken the day of the accident did not reveal any obvious injury.  But, in taking the deposition of the radiologists we were able to establish that a more detailed evaluation with CT scan could have revealed injury that did not show up on the ER films and records.  Our cross-examination of experts allowed us to prove that the accident more like than not caused the damage that wasn’t found until a month later.  Our case had strengths and weaknesses.  But, in the end, we were able to construct a sound argument; one strong enough to force a fair settlement.  If you want a law firm that’s willing to fight to prove your case…one that’s not afraid of the insurance company and its giant law firms…then call the Law Office of Keith Short at 618-655-9499 or 618-254-0055.
