Law Offices of David M. Benenfeld Announces $850,000 Case Settlement

case settlement

SUNRISE, Florida — What would you do if you suffered an injury on the job and felt you were more seriously hurt than your attorney and doctor believed? For one physical laborer, the answer was to seek out representation from The Law Offices of David M. Benenfeld. In this case, the client was represented by another lawyer at that time, went to mediation, and the insurance company offered the client $50,000. His attorney told him to take the offer and felt the offer was a great offer.  

However, the client thought he was more seriously hurt and scheduled a consultation with Mr. Benenfeld, who also felt that the client’s injury was more severe than the initial diagnosis claimed, potentially making the case worth more than what the previous law firm had determined. Mr. Benenfeld referred his client to a different doctor, who diagnosed him with reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD), also known as complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS). This chronic nerve disorder causes severe burning pain and abnormal sympathetic nerve activity in the affected area. Typically, it’s caused by trauma to a nerve, plexus, or soft tissue, such as with an injury. 

The outcome? Instead of settling for $50,000, thanks to the efforts of David M. Benenfeld and his legal team, the client received an $850,000 settlement — $800,000 more than what his previous law firm was able to achieve. $800,000 more than what his prior law firm felt was a “great” offer.  

“When this client came to me, I suspected that his injuries were worse than what he’d originally been told. However, I first had to get him to a trusted doctor for an accurate diagnosis,” explains Mr. Benenfeld. “Once we had the diagnosis of reflex sympathetic dystrophy, I had the information I needed to make a solid case on the client’s behalf and secure an $850,000 settlement. While no amount of money can compensate for this painful condition, my client does not have to worry about its financial consequences. I am thankful he didn’t accept the first offer and reached out to us for another opinion. Thanks to the efforts of the doctor and my legal team, we successfully resolved this case. I invite anyone who is in a similar situation to contact the Law Offices of David M. Benenfeld at (954) 677-0155 to schedule a free consultation.”
