$700,000 – Auto Accident

As the claimant was driving down an open road in her vehicle, a dual trailer gravel truck approached a stop sign ahead of her. The truck driver had a clear vision of the vehicle and was aware the vehicle had the right-of-way.The truck driver proceeded forward interrupting their right-of-way. Due to the excessive speed the vehicle was going, an accident was bound to happen. Liability was set at 30/70 (30 the vehicle, 70 the truck). The accident caused an open ankle fracture to the vehicle driver. She had to have surgery and a temporary hardware place in the ankle with a later date of an ankle fusion set. Although the vehicle was speeding,it was not the cause of the accident which is why the claimant received $700,000 for personal injuries.
