$865,000 Settlement for a Bucks County Driver and Passenger
Case Type: Personal Injury - Vehicle Accident
Our clients were traveling in a sports utility vehicle when they were violently struck by a minivan whose driver failed to yield while attempting a left turn. Our clients suffered severe permanent injuries.
Our client driving the vehicle sustained multiple spinal cord injuries impacting his neck and the upper, middle, and lower portions of his back. His injuries aggravated existing neurological and spinal conditions and required multiple invasive back and neck surgeries. He can no longer work in his previous occupation and lives with increased chronic back pain and a permanently changed gait.
The passenger suffered injuries to her upper, middle, and lower back, hip, and shoulder, including muscle spasms. As a result, she suffered severe pain and disability that prevented her from returning to work for more than a year.
After extensive negotiations, our attorneys were able to achieve settlements for the driver and passenger totaling $865,000.
