In 2015, our client was a passenger in her husband’s vehicle when the defendant driver went left of center and struck the couple’s truck head-on. As a result, our client’s husband lost control of the vehicle, causing the car to go into a nearby ditch. When emergency medical services arrived on the scene, our client had to be extracted from the car using the jaws of life. Our client was then taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital to treat her serious injuries. At the hospital, our client was diagnosed with fractures to her spine, right hand, right tibia, and right fibula.
Due to a successful negotiation, we obtained a policy limits settlement for our client and avoided the need for her to go through a stressful trial. Our client also was covered under an underinsured motorist policy and so we were able to secure an additional settlement for her under that policy.
