Rotator Cuff Surgery that Lead to a day in the ICU Settled for $275,000.

In this case, the Plaintiff was T-boned when driving down a road in Fairfax County when the Defendant attempted to leave a shopping center form a side street, failed to see the Plaintiff’s vehicle, and slammed into the passenger’s side of her vehicle.

As a result of the impact, Plaintiff’s main injury was a left shoulder rotator cuff tear.  After attempted conservative treatment, Plaintiff underwent surgery.  Immediately after the surgery, however, providers noticed a large edema of Plaintiff’s neck. Given concern for her airway, providers kept her intubated and admitted her into the ICU where she stayed one day.  Fortunately, the Plaintiff recovered quickly and was released from the hospital the following day with no complications from her ICU stay.

Over the following months, Plaintiff completed the expected course of physical therapy for her shoulder surgery. She ultimately made a solid recovery.  She incurred over $146,000 in medical bills.

The Defendant maintained a $100,000 liability policy.  The Plaintiff had $300,000 in UIM Coverage. Prior to filing suit, the matter settled for $275,000 combined insurance.
