Peter J. Gregory obtained a settlement sufficient to cover significant medical care expenses and lost wages for a client who was a passenger in a vehicle hit head-on by a driver who crossed the road’s center line. The passenger, who had to be extracted from the vehicle by the fire department, suffered injuries requiring multiple surgeries and long-term physical therapy. Due to the extent of the injuries, the passenger had to take unpaid time off from work and will likely exhaust his medical insurance coverage limits and incur significant out-of-pocket expenses.
By establishing that the driver who crossed the road’s center line did so negligently, and even after the driver of the injured’s car sounded the horn and tried to avoid the crash, Peter was able to secure the maximum insurance coverage available from both drivers’ policies. We are pleased that, as a result of MCCM’s assistance, the injured passenger will have far greater resources to aid in the healing process.
