MOTORCYCLIST SUFFERS EXTENSIVE INJURIES
While our client was traveling on a motorcycle, an oncoming vehicle attempted a left turn directly into our client’s path of travel. Our client could not avoid the collision and smashed directly into the other vehicle. Our client was rushed to the hospital and spent eight days in the Intensive Care Unit. He suffered a fractured skull, 11 broken ribs, a punctured lung, a broken arm, and a broken ankle. Our client has already undergone multiple surgeries and is facing a long road to recovery.
PIT BULL ATTACKS YOUNG GIRL’S FACE
Our client, a young girl, was swimming at her friend’s house. After our client was done swimming, she was instructed to go outside and hang up her towel. As the young girl went into the backyard, she was approached by their pit bull. The pit bull lunged at her and viciously attacked her face, biting off chunks of the girl’s lips and cheek. She was rushed to the hospital and underwent emergency surgery. Over the next several months, she will be monitored by a plastic surgeon and will begin treatment with a licensed clinical psychologist.
FAILURE TO YIELD
Our client, a passenger in a vehicle, was traveling northbound on State Route 79. At the same time, another vehicle turned directly into our client’s path of travel, causing the vehicles to collide head-on. The airbags deployed, and our client hit her legs on the glovebox. She was taken by ambulance to the hospital and was found to have whiplash, a laceration on her face, and a broken collar bone. She is being monitored by an orthopedic doctor to determine whether she will need to undergo surgery.
