Closed Head Injury from an Auto Accident
Our client was a passenger in a car driven by a drinking driver when another car pulled in front of them causing a terrible car accident on a country road late at night. The other driver died from her injuries and our client had broken bones and internal injuries.
Later medical exams showed that our client, a college student, had suffered a traumatic brain injury and had to withdraw from school. Our office ended up filing claims against the decedent driver for causing the accident.
We also brought a separate action against our client’s driver for driving after consuming alcoholic beverages and for excessive speeding. We were also able to obtain an Underinsured Motorist (UM) settlement with our client’s own insurance company.
