This case involves an elderly female patient who was still working, driving and living independently when she suffered a serious injury in a car accident. On the date of the incident in question, the Plaintiff was driving home from the grocery store when a pickup truck ran a red light and struck the driver side door of her car. As a result of the accident, the Plaintiff suffered a number of fractures on her left side, including a broken arm, broken ribs, and a serious knee injury. The Plaintiff’s physician recommended that she abstain from all strenuous activity and work for an extended period of time in order to heal. Previous to this order, the Plaintiff had been highly active, went for regular walks, and exercised almost daily. Some time after the accident, the Plaintiff was admitted to the hospital for a pulmonary embolism, during which time an additional diagnosis of atrial fibrillation was made. As a result of these new health issues, the patient was placed on Xarelto and forced to move to a nursing facility while doctors considered administering a pulmonary vein isolation and ablation procedure. It was claimed that the patient’s change in lifestyle after her car accident was responsible for her cardiovascular issues.
