A $3 million settlement was recently reached in a case where a construction worker who was working as a flagman directing traffic on the highway, was tragically injured. This worked injury caused him to become a C4 quadriplegic. At the time of the accident, he was 31-years-old, married with a 6-month-old child.
The insurance company initially offered less than one million dollars. It was clear, however, that the complexities, damages, and work needed to be done would not be covered in that settlement.
According to the suit, the victim had stopped several cars the day he was injured, but the driver of the last car in line ignored the order to stop. He sped around a line of vehicles and struck the claimant. Witnesses say he was thrown 15 feet in the air and 60 feet from the point of impact.
