An inattentive driver ran a stop sign on Highway 41 and t-boned our client. The forces from the impact fractured our client’s wrist and two of her fingers. Our client worked at local hospital, and her doctors placed her off work for two months due to her injuries. Our client’s broken bones eventually healed, but she was left with a crooked finger.
We convinced the insurance company for the at-fault driver to turn over its $100,000 policy limits without having to file a lawsuit. This saved our client the expense, time, and hassle of litigation. The settlement proceeds cover all of the medical bills and lost wages, and also compensate our client for her human losses. Human losses are the harms that an injured person suffers that do not come with a price tag attached. They include physical pain, mental suffering, anxiety, inconvenience, loss of enjoyment of life, loss of mobility, and disfigurement. Each of these harms is different, and the law demands full compensation for every one of them. This settlement helps to balance the scales of justice that the inattentive driver upset when she blew through that stop sign.
