$1,800,000 Settlement – Car AccidentPedestrian Accident
In April of 2021, our client and their grandchild were traveling on a frequented street. However, an oncoming vehicle went left-of center and struck our client and child. Because of the impact, our client became pinned between the steering wheel and dashboard, requiring an extraction by firefighters and other first responders. The grandchild had relatively minimal injuires.
An investigation by the Ohio State Highway Patrol uncovered that the at-fault driver was intoxicated at the time of the collision, and further blood tests showed that the at-fault driver had Fentanyl in his system.
The injuries suffered by our client were extreme, leaving the client immobile for an extended period of time, and their family having to perform simple life tasks for them, such as bathing, dressing, and food preparation. After the collision, our client was life-flighted to a local trauma center, where they spent nearly one-month hospitalized, including five separate surgeries.
Though our client will still have to receive routine treatment and rehabilitation, the $1,800,000 settlement our attorneys recovered will allow the client to pay medical bills, compensate for the horrific experience, and allow our client to relocate to a much more suitable home and allow for financial stability.
