DISCLAIMER: The results are specific to the facts and legal circumstances of each of the clients’ cases and should not be used to form an expectation that the same results could be obtained for other clients in similar matters without reference to the specific factual and legal circumstances of each client’s case.
A school bus driver for a local school district suffered a traumatic head injury when a utility truck ran a red light, and struck the school bus. Both her Workers’ Compensation carrier and the utility truck insurance company failed to appreciate the severity and impact on her life.
Following a 5-day jury trial our client was awarded a substantial sum of over $1,000,000 from the insurance companies involved, plus a lifetime monthly benefit from Social Security Disability.
