Compensation for Traumatic Brain Injury, chronic pain, and pelvic and ankle fractures
Our client was crossing the street in a safe and prudent manner when suddenly and without warning she was hit by a motor vehicle. The car accident caused serious personal injuries more particularly described below. Had the matter proceeded to trial it was very likely that a judge or jury would have found the driver entirely liable for the accident.
Injuries following the accident:
The head injury, an intracerebral bleed, was the primary injury causing her to suffer from headaches, dizziness, cognitive impairments, among other symptoms. She was also required to undergo surgery on her ankle. We referred her to a team of top occupational therapists who assisted with her rehabilitation, and who helped her become more independent in her everyday environment. While she made a remarkable recovery, it was apparent that her psychological and physical impairments would impact her in the workplace ultimately reducing her future earning capacity. Thankfully, our personal injury lawyer team has the resources to help her start a new life with her existing injuries.
We settled her tort claim for an all-inclusive amount of $950,000. and the accident benefits side of her case for $1,075, 000. bringing her total compensation to $2, 025 000.
Our client’s injuries were deemed catastrophic by the insurance company. This increased the amount of accident benefits that she was entitled to. We eventually settled her accident benefits claim for an additional $1,075,000.
