$93,000 Settlement – 14-Year-Old Hit by Car While Riding Skateboard

In 2015, our young client sustained serious injuries when he was hit by a car. Our client was riding his skateboard along the side of the road, with the flow of traffic, when the defendant driver struck him with her passenger side mirror. The impact caused our client to be thrown forward, lose consciousness, and be thrown to the side of the road.

At the hospital, our client was found to have sustained a traumatic brain injury, concussion, and a brain bleed. While our client’s injuries were substantial, luckily they were non-life threatening and he was able to be discharged from the hospital the day after the accident, with instructions to follow up with a neurosurgeon. Upon his follow up appointment, our client stated that he had continued complications as a result of the accident and that he was experiencing daily headaches, nausea, vomiting, and fatigue – all symptoms of brain injuries.

Our client’s mother contacted us in the days following the accident to assist them in their recovery. Due to a successful negotiation, we obtained a satisfactory settlement for our client that will go a long way to account for the pain and medical expenses he incurred.
