In 2018, just two days after Christmas, our client sustained several life-threatening injuries when he was involved in a motor vehicle accident. The defendant failed to drive carefully on snowy and icy roadways, lost control of his vehicle, traveled left of center, and collided head-on with our client’s vehicle. Our client was transported from the scene of the accident to a nearby hospital to treat his injuries.
At the hospital, it was determined that our client had sustained several serious injuries that required immediate attention. He had suffered a stroke and was diagnosed with a traumatic brain injury and intercranial hemorrhage. He was also found to have a severe kidney laceration, a fractured wrist, several broken ribs, and numerous lacerations. Our client required brain surgery, and his surgeon had to remove a portion of our client’s skull due to the increased pressure in his brain. He also needed a second procedure to repair the damage to his kidney. Our client then remained hospitalized for the next three weeks while he continued to recover from his extensive injuries.
Our firm was contacted shortly after this horrible accident to assist our client in his recovery and we successfully negotiated a policy limits settlement for him. The settlement we were able to obtain for our client will go a long way to account for the pain and medical expenses he incurred.
