Our 22-year-old client was walking across a roadway when he was violently struck by a negligent driver, then thrown into the air before landing on the pavement. He suffered multiple life-threatening injuries and was airlifted to a nearby hospital. While hospitalized over the next several weeks, he underwent several surgeries and intubation, which is the insertion of a tube to help with breathing.
Randall Sevenish’s Negotiation Skills Help Client Receive High Settlement
Our client’s claim was especially challenging to resolve because liability was disputed. The negligent driver’s insurance company argued that our client was partially at fault due to his intoxication. Unfortunately, our client couldn’t remember how the accident occurred because of his serious brain trauma. In addition, no one witnessed the incident.
Randall Sevenish conducted an extensive investigation of all aspects of our client’s case. Using the evidence he obtained, he convinced the negligent driver’s insurance company to settle our client’s claim for a high six-figure settlement despite the serious comparative fault issues for our client. While the settlement doesn’t eliminate the pain and injuries our client suffered, it enables him to pay his medical bills and move forward with his plans for the future.
