$142,000 Settlement for Pedestrian with Shattered Wrist

When M.L. was hit by a Jeep in a parking lot, the driver didn’t even notice her until bystanders yelled at him to stop the car. M.L. needed multiple surgeries to repair the shattered bones in her wrist. M.L. worked as a server, and needed full use of her wrist to do her job, and her injuries put her out of work for so long that she lost her job and her health insurance.

We had to help our client fight for what she was owed, as the at-fault driver’s insurance company put her through a contentious medical exam and made it difficult for her to be reimbursed for her ongoing care.

M.L. was a dedicated worker, and when she wasn’t able to return to work as a full time server, she decided to go back to school so she could do something productive in addition to picking up part time shifts. Although her ongoing wrist pain caused her problems at school, she persevered and is currently working on getting an associate’s degree.
