Hunt Whitehead and Michele Chiocca recently settled a case for $285,000.00 for a woman who sustained a torn rotator cuff as a result of the automobile accident. The case had been turned down by two law firms prior to Whitehead & Chiocca being retained. The client initially did not receive medical care following the collision. A few months after the wreck, her doctor determined that she had sustained a torn rotator cuff due to the impact of the collision. She ended up having three surgeries to repair her shoulder. The first two surgeries were unsuccessful in repairing the shoulder tendon. She also had a fourth procedure to unfreeze her shoulder. The case settled with the help of a court ordered mediator a few weeks prior to trial.
