Car Wreck – Drunk Driver – Negligence – Personal Injury
We successfully negotiated a $100,000.00 settlement for our client, which was all of the money available to our client. This was a violent crash where our client was injured when a drunk driver failed to yield the right of way and slammed into our client’s vehicle. Our client sustained a low back injury, which included a herniated disc with an annular fissure at L5-S1. Our office retrieved dash cam footage and vehicle footage from the responding police officers. This footage supported our client’s claim for gross negligence. The insurance company offered less than $25,000.00 before a lawsuit was filed. However, after litigation the case settled at mediation for the drunk driver’s policy limits of $100,000.00. Our office also obtained a fair settlement for our client’s minor son who was also in the vehicle and was not injured.
