$750,000 for Passenger Whose Driver Ran Into a Telephone Pole
A Clark Law Firm Client was a front seat passenger, 26 at the time, when the defendant driver negligently fell asleep at the wheel at approximately 2:00 a.m. and crashed into a utility pole. Our client suffered fractures of the right tibia and fibula and required an ORIF surgery. Our Client also suffered a tear of the right medial meniscus that was treated by way of arthroscopic surgery.
The Clark Law Firm client, who was slated to begin his career as an occupational therapist, delayed commencing work for several months but did not lose time from work once commencing. The defendant maintained that our client’s injuries substantially resolved. The defendant had $250,000 in primary coverage and a $1,000,000 umbrella. The case was settled by Stephanie Tolnai prior to trial for $750,000.
