Golf cart mishap results in $380,000 settlement.
Posted By The Dunnion Law Firm
An elderly woman leaving a charitable event was attempting to board a golf cart when the driver sped off causing her to fall, striking her head on pavement, which resulted in a skull fracture. Not knowing what to do, she contacted the Dunnion Law Firm. Luckily, the fracture healed quickly and her doctors diagnosed her with post-concussion syndrome. After 6 months, her doctors cleared her with a clean bill of health, however this does not give you the whole story of how her brain was truly affected by this fall. The Dunnion Law Firm was able to have her evaluated by a neuropsychologist who diagnosed a traumatic brain injury and was able to provide a comprehensive report giving the full picture of what this poor woman went through and what her prognosis is for the future. With this ammunition, the Firm was able to negotiate a settlement that reflects the damages she sustained.
