In July 2015, a man, his girlfriend, and her two children were returning to Colorado when they approached a stopped vehicle on the highway. They stopped, but their Mitsubishi Eclipse was struck from behind by a flat-box truck. The force of impact was so severe that the driver’s seat was damaged; the man suffered a cervical spine injury and a traumatic brain injury that put him in the hospital for six days.
The defense alleged that the plaintiff and the third vehicle driver were at fault, but after a highly-contested trial, the plaintiff was awarded nearly $12 million.
Awaiting the conclusion of a hard-fought lawsuit cannot only be physical, mentally, and emotionally exhausting, but financially as well.
