A serious auto accident can be life-changing. In addition to the physical and emotional devastation, injuries can lead to financial strain, especially for those unable to return to work. Fortunately, auto accident lawsuit funding can provide immediate cash relief, without risk.
The City of Seattle recently agreed to pay nearly $66 million to cover ongoing care for a woman, as well as loss of future income, after she suffered traumatic brain injuries in a crash with an ambulance in April 2016.
According to police reports, the woman’s Porsche was struck by an ambulance about halfway through an intersection. Her vehicle spun around before hitting a tree. As a result of the crash, she suffered both physical and mental impairments. She has undergone extensive brain surgery and spent several months in a rehabilitation facility, followed by an extended stay at an assisted-care facility. Her injuries were serious enough to prevent her from continuing her career as a prominent intellectual property attorney, and she will require a lifetime of medical care. Since the accident, the Seattle Fire Department has improved its driver training program.
