The Details of Emily’s Road-Crossing Motor Vehicle Accident Case
Emily was the victim of a motor vehicle accident while she was crossing a road during her regular morning walk. She sustained a series of injuries, which were notably severe and diverse:
(a) A left lateral tibial plateau fracture, necessitating surgical intervention;
(b) Soft tissue injuries to her shoulder;
(c) Soft tissue injuries to her hip;
(d) Scarring; and
(e) Psychological trauma.
To address these medical issues, Emily underwent surgery for her fractured tibia and engaged in physical therapy for her soft tissue injuries. She also sought psychological counseling to cope with the mental stress and trauma caused by the accident.
Following legal negotiations, Emily’s case was resolved through the exchange of mandatory final offers. She received a $90,000 settlement during a conference, in addition to standard costs, to cover her medical expenses, psychological counseling, and loss of income.
