While stopped in traffic on a busy street, a tow truck headed in the opposite direction inexplicably crossed the double yellow line and hit our client. He was rushed to the hospital where he suffered fractures of his ribs and collar bone (clavicle). He remained in the hospital for about 10 days until the pain from neck and back disc herniations were controlled. After leaving the hospital our client needed an operation on his knee to repair a torn meniscus. Our client missed about a year of work. The insurance company offered $75,000 to settle the case. After hiring multiple expert doctors and economic experts, we obtained a settlement more than ten (10) times that amount immediately prior to presenting our opening statement.
