Sworn Statements of Treating Surgeon and Primary Physician Taken in Scottsdale Car Accident Case
This week, the sworn statements of two treating physicians were taken in a Scottsdale car accident case where the firm’s clients are a mother and daughter. In November 2015, the firm’s clients were traveling westbound on East Shea Boulevard and as they were proceeding through the intersection of 110th Street, they collided with a vehicle that turned in front of them. The impact was severe causing the airbags to deploy and the clients’ vehicle to careen off of the initial impact and hit a telephone pole. The mother sustained a concussion and neck injury and the daughter sustained a concussion as well.
Tony Piccuta of Scottsdale Injury Lawyers, LLC filed a lawsuit on behalf of the mother and daughter after the insurance company failed to offer a reasonable amount to resolve the claim. The lawsuit was filed in Maricopa County Superior Court an alleged that the driver was negligent for failing to yield the right of way at an intersection in violation of A.R.S. 28-772 and failing to control speed to avoid a collision in violation of A.R.S. 28-701A. The lawsuit sought unspecified damages for the clients’ injuries.
On June 13th, the sworn statement of the mother’s treating orthopedic surgeon was taken by the attorneys representing the insurance company. The mother had received a consultation with the orthopedic surgeon to determine if she was a surgical candidate. On June 14th, the sworn statement of the mother’s primary treating physician was taken to determine if he attributed the injuries she sustained to the motor vehicle collision. The case is set for trial later this year.
