Julia G.’s Story
On a January afternoon, Julia G., a San Antonio school teacher, was driving down the road when another vehicle suddenly pulled out of a driveway and into her lane. Although Julia did her best to avoid the crash, she T-boned the other car. The collision was violent enough to deploy Julia’s airbags and total her SUV.
The other driver claimed that she simply “did not see” Julia’s vehicle. However, the police officers blamed the other driver for the crash and cited her for failure to yield the right of way. Emotionally shaken and in a lot of pain, Julia headed to the emergency room.
Julia Struggles to Get the Care She Needs
At the ER, Julia reported dizziness and nausea as well as pain in her chest, right hip, and right leg. However, because Julia’s x-rays and head CT scan did not show any severe injuries, she was sent home with medications and told to follow up with her primary care doctor. Unfortunately, that’s where Julia’s problems began.
First, the doctor’s office told Julia they couldn’t treat her because her injuries were crash-related. Her doctor referred her to another medical practice, but the doctor there also refused to treat Julia because she did not have personal injury protection insurance, which covers crash-related medical expenses regardless of fault. Frustrated and afraid, Julia started to research San Antonio personal injury lawyers. That’s when she discovered Crosley Law.

Crosley Law Gives Julia Answers and Peace of Mind
The Crosley Law team quickly connected Julia with a medical provider who could help her. Julia was diagnosed with a concussion and post-concussion syndrome, which caused memory problems, dizzy spells, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), and headaches. These conditions required intense treatment, including vestibular therapy, which aimed to help resolve Julia’s balance and hearing issues. Julia also got treatment for her neck and back pain.

However, the team at Crosley Law didn’t stop there. In addition to helping Julia get much-needed medical treatment, our lawyers began investigating her case and consulting with experts. We filed claims with the at-fault driver’s insurance company and Julia’s uninsured/underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) policy, demanding compensation for her lost income, medical bills, and pain and suffering.
During a deposition, our legal team got the at-fault driver to admit she had failed to yield to Julia’s SUV and hadn’t even bothered to look a second time before pulling out into traffic. Based on this testimony, the other driver was clearly responsible for Julia’s damages.
Next, we consulted with experts, including a neuropsychologist and a neuroradiologist. Looking at Julia’s CT and MRI scans, the neuroradiologist found clear evidence of a crash-related traumatic brain injury (TBI). The neuropsychologist then found that Julia had suffered memory loss and had problems with decision-making due to her TBI.
Armed with this information, Crosley Law’s lawyers negotiated two settlements for Julia and secured a total of $329,000. While her settlements gave Julia peace of mind and financial security, she said the client experience she had with Crosley Law was priceless.
“You helped us tremendously throughout this ordeal,” she wrote to the Crosley Law team. “You always had time for us whenever we had questions. You were very available to speak to us… 100%, I would recommend.”
