Our client, a 44-year-old female, suffered a shoulder injury resulting from an automobile collision. She was diagnosed with a Type I SLAP injury to her left “dominant” shoulder. As a result, the client was restricted from lifting more than 10 pounds over her shoulder, and could no longer participate in a number of recreational activities. Her medical expenses were approximately $12,400, and she lost about $1,000 of income while treating. After payment of all medical expenses (the law office negotiated reductions of the largest expenses), and attorney fees, the client netted over $25,800. The most the insurance company was willing to pay the client, prior to her representation by Steffens Law Office, was less than $3,600 net.
