When our client, Ms. Smith, went to the beach a few summers ago, she had no idea that her casual afternoon would be the worst day of her life. While swimming with family and friends, the 35 year old nurse was struck by a jet-ski driven by a young woman. An investigation revealed that the woman on the jet-ski was intoxicated. Ms. Smith suffered a severe shoulder injury which required a surgery and a long recovery. After being told by other attorneys that she didn’t have a case, the attorneys at Manuel & Thompson, took over the case and achieved a fair result.
