Chicago Car Accident - $500,000 Settlement
While driving her car in Chicago, our client was involved in a serious head-on collision with an off-duty Chicago police officer who crossed the center line median into oncoming traffic and was later charged with DUI. Our client was immediately taken by emergency ambulance to the hospital due to her life threatening injuries. Once admitted to the ER, it was determined that in addition to the many other types of injury she sustained, she had suffered multiple fractures to her pelvis and leg as well. Many surgeries, a great deal of therapy and over $150,000 in medical expenses were incurred over the following years as this courageous woman fought to regain her health. We were gratified to ultimately negotiate a settlement of one-half million dollars on her behalf. This settlement represented the maximum policy limits available under the other party’s insurance policy.
