Settlement Amount: $1,000,000
Brett McCandlis Brown & Conner attorneys Dean Brett and David Brown tackled the challenging case for our client who was severely injured when her car was destroyed by a head-on collision with an out-of-control tractor trailer. Our client spent months in the hospital and skilled nursing facilities as she endured multiple operations and months of physical therapy to recover from her extensive injuries that resulted in more than $200,000 in medical bills.
Our client was driving in slushy road conditions when she saw a speeding semi truck that was heading in the oncoming lane begin to lose control. Our client tried to turn out of the path of the truck but was unable to get to safety, and her vehicle was smashed head on.
Dean and Dave’s client was nearly killed. Her injuries included a broken eye socket, and broken bones to both arms and both legs, resulting in seven surgeries, months in rehabilitation programs, and hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical bills. The driver was cited for going too fast for road conditions, and the trucking company was cited for running a vehicle with defective brakes.
Our client was left with permanent disability and a lifetime of physical and emotional pain. Dean and Dave negotiated a policy limits settlement with the insurance company for the trucking company, and because they succeeded in getting this full settlement, they were also able to negotiate a settlement from our client’s insurance company under her Under-insured Motorist Policy, for a total settlement of $1 million.
