Settlement – 17-Year-Old Sustains Severe Injuries in Auto Accident

In June 2020, our client was riding as a passenger in a friend’s vehicle when she sustained multiple serious injuries when the vehicle was involved in an auto accident. The car our client was riding in failed to stop at a posted stop sign and collided with another car that was traveling on the intersecting road. The force of the collision caused both cars to travel off the road and into an old brick schoolhouse. Our client was transported to Toledo Hospital via emergency medical services for treatment of her injuries.

At the hospital, our client was found to have sustained numerous severe injuries. She was diagnosed with a fractured pelvis, a collarbone fracture, a fracture to her right ankle, broken ribs, a ruptured bladder, a punctured lung, and internal bleeding. She was admitted to the ICU and was required to remain in the hospital for the next two weeks following the accident. Due to the severity of the fracture to her collarbone, our client was required to undergo a surgical repair with placement of metal implants to stabilize the injury.

We were contacted by our client’s mother to assist in her daughter’s recovery after this horrific accident occurred. Through successful negotiations, we avoided trial and obtained a large settlement for our client. The settlement we were able to obtain for her will go a long way to account for the pain and suffering she incurred.
