$90,000 Settlement – Eight-Year-Old Girl Sustains Internal Trauma and Fractured Clavicle in Auto Accident

In June 2014, our client was riding in her father’s truck traveling eastbound on Mermill Road in Portage, Ohio, when they were involved in a motor vehicle accident. The defendant driver failed to stop at a posted stop sign, causing a collision with the family’s truck. Our client was taken by ambulance to Wood County Hospital to treat her injuries. The defendant was issued a citation and found to be at fault for causing the accident.

At the hospital, doctors determined that our client had suffered trauma to her abdomen, a fractured clavicle, and several contusions. She was transferred to Toledo Children’s Hospital, where she underwent a surgical repair of her bowel and treatment for her other injuries. Our client then remained in the hospital for four days to continue healing. As a result of the accident and her injuries, our client suffered from severe continued pain, immobility, and weakness.

We were contacted shortly after this horrific accident to assist our client in her recovery. We were able to completely avoid the need for litigation as we were able to obtain a satisfactory settlement for our client. The settlement we were able to recover on our client’s behalf will go a long way to account for her pain and suffering.
