We recently represented the passenger in the second vehicle of a three-car accident. The vehicle our client was a passenger in sustained impacts to the front and rear of the vehicle. The driver of our vehicle was uninsured at the time of the accident and fled the scene after impact while our client was still in the vehicle.
The driver of the third vehicle, a tow truck, claimed that our car struck the car in front of it before backing up into his tow truck and fleeing the scene. The driver of our vehicle claimed he was stopped when he was hit from behind by the tow truck and pushed in the car in front of him.
At trial liability and causation were at issue. In addition, during trial, our client’s history of drug abuse and recent felony convictions were entered into evidence. The final offer of settlement before trial was $3,000. After trial, the jury came back with a verdict in favor of our client for $107,000. This is a sizeable verdict for Middlesex County where juries are known for being very conservative.
If you have been injured in an accident, even one where the facts are simple and straightforward, having an experienced attorney on your side can mean the difference between a small settlement and a larger, more favorable, recovery to address damages and more. There’s no need for you to suffer injuries due to someone else’s negligence.
