Our client was riding as a passenger in a vehicle to a family member’s home when an oncoming vehicle ran off the road. The other vehicle came back onto the road, overcorrected, and crossed the centerline, running off the road for a second time. Our client swerved to avoid a collision. Once both vehicles returned to the road, the vehicles collided head-on causing damage to both vehicles.
Our client was transported to UVA Hospital where he was treated and received surgery on his left side femur, lateral tibial plateau, and lateral meniscus. After some time in the hospital, he’s spent his time working towards recovery. Most unfortunately, the other driver was uninsured so we had to resolve for policy limits. There was $100,00 available on the policy of the car he was riding in and then another $100,000 available from his own vehicle policy. This is another classic example of the importance of having a lot of insurance – obtain the highest policy you can afford to get!Back To Results
