$550,000 Settlement For DUI Victim
Our 22-year-old client was driving home in the early morning hours on US-41 when the defendant driver going in the opposite direction crossed the center line and struck her car head on. She was transported to Sarasota Memorial Hospital and then later airlifted to a trauma hospital where she underwent emergency surgery for a pelvic fracture. The defendant was arrested for DUI and tested positive for both alcohol and marijuana. Our office sent settlement offers to both the driver and owner of the vehicle and when neither responded within the time limits, we filed suit against both parties. After extensive litigation, our office secured a settlement for our client of $550,000. Injuries: Fractured pelvis requiring internal fixation with 6 screws and a plate, both knees, low back. Damages: Past and future medical care, past lost wages, past and future pain and suffering. SENVER v. TROUTMAN & TRADEWAY SUPPLY, INC.
