A married couple vacationing in South Florida were driving to the beach when a truck driving in the lane opposite theirs lost control and crashed into their vehicle. The husband, a back seat passenger, had to be extricated from the vehicle and ultimately airlifted to a local hospital for the sever injuries he sustained to his chest. In fact, the collision was so great the shoulder belt had “indented” his chest. Similarly, his wife seated in the front passenger seat was transported via ambulance to a local hospital. The husband required surgery to remove skin necrosis from his leg and sustained tears and impingement to his shoulder as a result of this accident. Likewise, his wife, required arthroscopy and meniscetomy to repair knee damage and sustained sever strain and contusions on different areas of her body.
Our firm settled their case before going to trial for $200,000.
