Our client, John Smith, was out drinking at a tavern with some of his co-workers one evening after a day at work. One of Smith's coworkers decided to drive home from the tavern, and John was a passenger in the vehicle.
The driver lost control of the vehicle on a highway near Renton, exited the highway and rolled the vehicle several times before eventually crashing into an embankment on the side of the road. John was thrown from the vehicle and suffered a traumatic brain injury, among other serious and potentially life-threatening injuries, as a result of the collision.
TBI Victim's Rehabilitation and Recovery
John spent a total of four weeks in the hospital recovering from his injuries and had to undergo several medical procedures during that time.
The defendant's insurance company argued that John was responsible for electing to ride with a drunk driver, and the case eventually went to trial. After 8 months of litigation and numerous depositions, the parties agreed to settle the case. Davis Law Group was able to successfully recover a $2,150,000 settlement on behalf of our client.
