A.B. was sitting in the passenger seat when a careless driver plowed into the back of the car she was riding in. A.B. and the driver were both badly injured in the crash. A.B.’s pain was especially persistent: she developed Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, an excruciating condition in which the nerves and blood vessels of the shoulder are compressed after a traumatic injury.
Thoracic Outlet Syndrome is a group of disorders that occur when blood vessels or nerves in the space between your collarbone and your first rib (thoracic outlet) are compressed. This can cause pain in your shoulders and neck and numbness in your fingers.
A.B. had to undergo multiple surgeries to correct the damage called by her accident, and she struggled with her recovery from surgery while caring for her new baby and dealing with bankruptcy caused in part by her medical bills.
The legal battle was a long one. Her case, which started all the way back in 2009, has come to an end at last, with Davis Law Group recovering $125,000 for her injuries and other damages.
