Our client, a college student, was T-boned by a large truck in Black Hawk County, Iowa. The “Jaws of Life” were necessary to extract the victim from her vehicle due to the severity of the impact. The at-fault driver was inattentive and did not slow down prior to striking our client’s vehicle who had the right-of-way at the intersection.
The client was eventually air-lifted to a nearby hospital where her injuries included: two skull fractures, a brain hemorrhage, headaches, memory loss, balance issues, anxiety, back pain, neck pain, rib pain, bruising, and abrasions. Fortunately, the client made a full recovery and lives with no permanent physical injuries.
After several months of negotiations with the at-fault driver’s insurance company, our attorney obtained full policy limits and the amount of $250,000.00 was tendered. This settlement helped pay off all the client’s medical bills and put a sizable sum of money in her pocket for pain and suffering.
