$9 Stipulated Judgment For Injured Passenger
Our 26-year-old client was a passenger in a van on his way to a job site to paint when for reasons that remain unknown a vehicle travelling in the opposite direction veered into their path. The injuries that resulted from this head on collision were devastating to our client as well as the 6 other passengers of the van. Our client suffered a severe brain injury leaving him wheelchair bound and with the mentality of a child. He will need constant care and supervision for the remainder of his life. Our office sent an offer to the Defendant driver’s insurance carrier for the per person policy limits of $100,000. However, the insurance carrier did not accept our offer and our office filed suit. In July of 2009, our office accepted a stipulated judgment in the amount of $9,000,000. A bad faith case is currently pending against the insurer.
