$490,000 Settlement for Motor Vehicle Accident

David Fried represented a woman who was on her way to the gym in the early morning before work when she was struck by another vehicle driven by a woman who had fallen asleep at the wheel. Our client had a severely fractured ankle requiring multiple surgeries. She also required a thoracotomy. Because of the stresses related to her job’s requirements, she can no longer work in the same job due to continuing ankle/foot pain. David was able to settle this case for $490,000 out of a maximum of $500,000 in coverage available from the defendants auto insurance policy.
