Personal Injury Case – $175,000 Settlement
Settlement/Verdict: $175,000 Settlement
A 76-year old woman was a passenger in a vehicle that was involved in a collision at a traffic intersection. The driver of her vehicle failed to yield the right of way and her vehicle was struck by a cargo van on the passenger’s side. Liability was not an issue.
She was unconscious immediately following the accident and was transported by helicopter to the University of Virgina. As a result of the accident, she suffered a laceration to the back of her head and a subarachnoid hemorrhage which caused confusion and short-term memory loss. She was hospitalized overnight and also required 24-hour care for several weeks after returning home.
