The client, a female in her mid-40s, sustained extensive injuries when the car she was traveling in flipped over. The collision was severe enough to cause the death of one other passenger in the vehicle. The client was diagnosed with a traumatic brain injury and underwent extensive medical treatment for this, as well as other associated injuries. She incurred substantial medical bills for her treatment following this incident.
Counsel consulted with multiple physicians regarding the client’s injuries, including a neurologist. He also retained the services of a life care planner. Suit was filed in this matter in the Warren County Circuit Court and, after depositions and a full round of discovery, a settlement was successfully negotiated for the client in the amount of $1.4 million.
