In the car wreck, our client was an innocent front seat passenger in a small vehicle parked at a red light when the Defendants’ large work van blew through a red light at a high rate of speed and caused a multi-vehicle wreck. The Defendants’ vehicle hit one vehicle in the intersection before hitting our client head on and pushing her vehicle into other vehicles at the red light behind her. The collision was so violent that our client’s legs and knees were badly crushed and broken inside the vehicle, rendering her unable to walk and dependent on a wheelchair for the foreseeable future as she continues therapy and medical treatment.
Our client had over $226,000.00 in past medical bills and past lost wages of over $62,000.00 paid by worker’s compensation which had to be repaid out of the settlement funds pursuant to the lien worker’s compensation carriers have on third party recoveries. Worker’s compensation plans do not pay full rate on lost wages as the law allows the compensation to be capped. Thus, our client was forced by Defendants to live on less income even when her expenses has increased due to her immobile condition.
The attorneys at the Amaro Law Firm wasted no time in filing the lawsuit within a few weeks of our client being released home from medical care and a rehabilitation facility in which she spent over 3 months.

In depositions, the Defendants’ corporate representatives folded under pressure and admitted they were grossly negligent in hiring and retaining an unsafe driver. Exhibiting a complete lack of responsibility, Defendants’ driver had not even bothered to take care of the ticket for running the red light in this case which hurt many people. The Amaro Law Firm attorneys pushed hard and the court heard many motions to compel Defendants to produce the evidence they unsuccessfully tried to hide. The Amaro Law Firm pushed even harder for a trial setting to get our clients justice as quickly as possible.

When our client refused to sign a covenant not to sue, the hospital terminated his medical benefits and terminated him under false pretenses. The lawsuit was filed in state court but removed to federal court by defendants.

Unfortunately, the at-fault driver only had minimal insurance limits and no assets. Fortunately, our client had underinsured motorist coverage to help pay the medical bills, but they too had the minimal policy limits from a Louisiana policy of $15,000.00. Thus, the clients recovered the maximum amounts of insurance available from all the vehicles involved which totaled $90,000.00.
Unfortunately, the medical bills far exceeded the amount of available insurance so our clients needed help to prevent filing bankruptcy at such a young age. After several months of aggressive negotiations, the attorneys at the Amaro Law Firm negotiated down the medical bills for life flight, ER, and other medical bills which totaled over $300,000.00, down to nearly $30,000.00 total, so that the clients netted $19,896.83 from the total recovery after medical bills, attorneys’ fees, and expenses were paid.
