Couple hit by unlicensed company driver obtain $500,000
Jan 17, 2017
Our clients were an older couple who were driving in Merced County with the right of way. The other driver, who was unlicensed, was driving a pickup truck for his employer, made an illegal left turn and hit our clients. The husband fractured his wrist and hurt his shoulder and back. His wife suffered a serious spinal injury, a shoulder injury and internal injuries. Both were transported to the hospital via ambulance and kept for observation. Each underwent orthopedic evaluations and sought medical care over the next few years including physical therapy, injections and various MRI’s. Thankfully, both of them recovered well from their injuries considering their ages. We sued the company and its negligent driver and aggressively pushed them to the brink of trial where they finally agreed to pay our clients the compensation they deserved.
