$2,470,000 for Bristol Man Seriously Injured by Armored Car
Case Type: Personal Injury - Vehicle Accident
Our client, a Bristol, PA man, was seriously injured when he was rear-ended by an armored car just a mile from his home.
The driver had just just stopped at a red light on Route 13 during rainy weather conditions. The strong force of the collision from the armored vehicle caused a spinal fracture which needed spinal surgery with implementation of hardware.
The man’s surgical site later became infected, which required the previously implemented hardware to be removed. He then developed MRSA while in the hospital which required significant wound care. Finally, he developed a drop-foot condition due to the back injury. Because of this, he will be required to walk using a cane for the remainder of his life.
Several key details regarding the accident were uncovered by Cordisco and his team, including that the driver of the armored car was hired about two days prior to the crash with minimal training. On the day following the crash, the driver was fired from his position. The names of the defendants and their insurance companies will not be shared as they are kept confidential per agreement.
After a full day of mediation and a pre-trial settlement conference featuring much negotiation, the team was able to reach a fair settlement of $2,470,000 for a severely injured client.
