This settlement was attained on the brink of trial after the case was thoroughly prepared. Our client was severely injured in a violent motor vehicle accident. Defendant passed our client illegally on the left forcing a second defendant to lose control and cross over the double yellow line causing a head on collision that destroyed both vehicles. Client suffered numerous injuries including a neck injury resulting in a 5-level posterior cervical discectomy and fusion, foot fractures, facial fractures, fractured clavicle, and shoulder injuries requiring surgery. One of the defendants fled the scene and immediate and highly skilled investigation was necessary to find him and secure his insurance information. We retained 5 expert witnesses, including 4 doctors and a professional medical visualist who developed graphic color slides to show a jury just how our client suffered his injuries.
