This settlement was achieved for a client who sustained a severe ankle crush and shoulder injury as a result of a "head on" motor vehicle collision. Our client suffered from chronic pain and some permanent impairment as a result of the injury.
This is a case where a 62 yr old man was killed when his vehicle collided with a piece of farm equipment that was being transported on a 18 wheeler. The tracks of the combine were protruding over the center line into Decedent's oncoming lane of travel. The Defendants claimed that Decedent did not see the approaching escort vehicle and "wide load" because he was legally blind in one eye, had deteriorating medical conditions which affected the vision of his other eye and that he was comparatively negligent for not taking any evasive action to avoid the load. With no meaningful offer of settlement having been made, Yarborough Applegate's attorneys were associated to assist as trial counsel 60 days prior to trial. The case was settled at trial after jury selection.
During a collision caused by the Defendant, the Plaintiff suffered an open femur fracture that required surgery. The injury resulted in a permanent injury to the Plaintiff's leg. The case was filed by another attorney who associated our firm to be trial counsel. Prior to our association on this case, the Defendant had denied liability and only a minimal offer had been made. As part of this settlement on the eve of trial, the Defendant agreed to write a letter to our client apologizing and accepting full responsibility for the harm he had caused her.
