Car Accident Victim Recovers $1.5 Million For Injuries
Amount: $1.5 Million
Case name: Confidential
Description: The Whitley Law Firm is happy to announce a $1.5 million settlement on behalf of a client who was seriously injured in a car crash. Attorneys Bob and Ben Whitley represented the victim, a 43-year-old man, who sustained kidney damage, a broken nose, and fractured ankle when another driver failed to stop at a stop sign.Included in the settlement are funds to cover the victim’s $227,000 in past medical expenses, $123,800 for anticipated future medical expenses, and $123,000 in future income loss.
The victim collected from the at-fault driver’s primary policy liability and a portion excessive liability as part of the pre-suit settlement. Both parties have agreed to keep other details of the settlement confidential.
Although the other driver was cited by police for failing to obey the stop sign, the defendant strongly contested the claim by the victim for damages, however, both parties agreed to early mediation in order to decrease the amount of legal fees and other expenses that drawn-out litigation would have cost.
The early settlement also ensures that the victim can now receive physical therapy that is mandatory for his recovery. He was unable to pursue that course of treatment because he no longer has medical insurance and could not afford to pay for the therapy.
The skilled Raleigh personal injury attorneys at the Whitley Law Firm have more than 80 years of combined experience aggressively advocating for accident victims and getting them the compensation they deserve.
