Other Useful Information

Plaintiffs were passengers in a car struck by the operator of a pickup truck who crossed a double yellow line causing a head-on collision and severe personal injuries. The motor vehicle accident was clearly the fault of the negligent truck driver.

Plaintiff number 1 was 77 years old. As a result of the car crash, she suffered a fractured hip, which required surgery, along with a collapsed lung. Prior to the accident, she lived independently, which she was unable to do following her recovery from injuries.

Plaintiff number 2 was 65 years old. As a result of the collision, she suffered several personal injuries, including multiple fractures, none requiring surgery. She was left with a tingling sensation in a burning feeling in her major hand which was caused by nerve damage. Both plaintiffs had retired from employment well before this accident happened.
