Nurse Experiences Chronic Pain From Automobile Accident – Virginia Attorney Stuart Nachman Explains


Several years ago, I represented a woman who
was involved in a horrible collision with a dump truck. In fact, the first time I saw
her after her husband had asked me to come to the hospital, she was in so much pain that
she was in a fetal position in her bed and unable to communicate with me. She sustained
the type of injuries that she will have to live with the rest of her life. And she walks
with an assisted device and will always need one. I was able to help her in doing a thorough
investigation concerning the facts of her case, in working with her doctors and other
health care providers to present all aspects of her medical problems to those that ultimately
were going to pay her for her injuries and other losses. One of the aspects of her case
that the defense did not appreciate until we were able to document it appropriately
through the use of vocational experts and economist, was the loss of what is called
“earning capacity” as this woman was a nurse but was unable to return to that field.
Yes, she could do certain things while seated at a desk, but she couldn’t perform the
valuable functions of a nurse which would have far greater compensated her than any
job she could have performed at a desk. So we were able to demonstrate that. Finally,
to the satisfaction of the insurance company which caused them to eventually agree to pay
a fair sum to compensate her – not only for her previous losses, but all those that
she would undoubtedly experience in the future. So why do I tell you this story. It’s a
story about one woman who I was able to help, who was in dire need, who I found in the fetal
position in her hospital bed, and who hopefully helped plan in a satisfactory manner the rest
of her life. So if you have any questions that you think I can answer to help you with
problems, perhaps not as bad as these or perhaps worse than those, then I want you to give
me a call by picking up the phone and calling me at the number that appears below my smiling
face. Thank you.
