Laurel Car Accident

Laurel Car Accident Verdict

Laurel, car accident lawyer, George Patterson obtained a $46,055.33 car accident jury verdict ($10,727.33 medical bills, $5,376.00 lost wages and $29,952.00 non-economic damages) in Prince George’s County in 2012. The client from Laurel, Maryland sustained a chronic neck strain and a mild head injury in a car accident that occurred in Howard County. The defendant's insurance company hired a doctor to claim that the client had mild muscle strains and should have recovered within several weeks. The offer to settle the Laurel car accident case before suit was filed was just over $18,000.00. The offer was increased to $32,500.00 after the video depositions of the plaintiff's and the defendant's doctors were taken for use at trial. 

The trial testimony of the defense doctor established that his opinions were biased and not consistent with the medical records.  The defendant's doctor relied on treatment guidelines that all but a couple of states have declined to follow and that have not been recognized by the American Medical Association.  The car accident lawyers at RGPH are familiar with the various treatment guidelines and permanency rating guides that medical doctors and chiropractors follow.  These guides are often subject to interpretation and the choice of a particular guide can slant a doctor's opinion.
