$1,200,000 Settlement – Single Car Collision Involving Injuries To An Innocent Passenger
Shiver Hamilton Campbell represented a young girl who was a passenger in a vehicle that crashed. The vehicle’s driver initially claimed that another driver stuck her vehicle from behind, causing her to lose control of the vehicle. After a thorough investigation, Shiver Hamilton Campbell proved that the driver’s account was unsupported by the facts, and that the distracted driver lost control of her vehicle, causing it to run off a major highway and travel over a hundred feet into the woods before striking a tree at a high rate of speed.
The wreck caused significant injuries to our client, including a severe leg fracture and a traumatic brain injury. First responders at the scene of the wreck found our client to be unconscious and trapped inside the crushed vehicle. A life flight helicopter was summoned to the scene while first responders extricated our client from the vehicle.
Shiver Hamilton Campbell worked the case up for trial and battled the insurance companies over the necessity of present and future medical care. Days before trial was to begin, Shiver Hamilton Campbell settled the case for $1.2 million, which was many multiples of our client’s medical expenses, who had made a valiant recovery.
