Share Lawyers - Settlement for Jim Bradbury

Jim Bradbury was searching through a store display when several of the boxes struck him in the head and knocked him unconscious as the display came apart.

TO THE WALK-IN CLINIC

Jim returned home, where his wife took him to the walk-in clinic. He had pain over the bridge of his nose and tenderness in his mid-forehead. He also felt dizzy and nauseous. The doctor suggested that Jim wait a few days and watch for signs of concussion.

TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM

Jim’s symptoms worsened over the next few days to include vertigo, ringing in the ears, headaches and short term memory loss. He went to the emergency room, where he was diagnosed with a concussion and referred to a neurologist.

THE DIAGNOSIS WORSENS

The neurologist examined Jim and diagnosed a brain injury and inner-ear damage, which was causing the vertigo and tinnitus.

THE IMPACT

Jim was unable to return to work as a project engineer after the incident, and his family was beginning to feel the economic impact of his injury. His doctors had only guarded optimism for his eventual improvement. His family needed to make long-range plans for their financial future. Anxiety began to mount.

HELP FOR THE INJURED

A friend suggested to Jim that he contact Share Lawyers for assistance. Share Lawyers immediately notified the store of the claim and received a denial from their insurance adjuster. In the meantime, Jim’s short-term disability ran out and he applied for long-term disability benefits, which were denied.

TWO LAWSUITS

Share Lawyers took quick action in pursuit of Jim’s benefits by filing a lawsuit against the store and the disability insurance. Jim was scheduled for follow-up medical exams to provide a complete picture of his injuries and restrictions.

MEDIATION

Both defendants decided to try to settle the cases, and mediation was scheduled. Share Lawyers gathered all of the pertinent documents needed to maximize the settlement.

SETTLEMENT = SECURITY

The settlement included damages for pain and suffering, loss of income and medical expenses, enough to give Jim and his family security for the future.
