$425,000 Car Accident

Fairfax County, VA
Type Of Case:Car accident
Location:Fairfax County, VA
Injuries Sustained:Broken hip repaired with permanent hardware, dislocated toes, scalp laceration
Verdict or Settlement:Settlement

Our client was driving down the road on his way home when an oncoming vehicle crossed over the double yellow line and collided head-first into him. It was determined later that the other driver was operating his vehicle under the influence of narcotics. The last thing our client remembered was driving and then bright lights coming towards him. He lost consciousness after the crash. He was unable to get out of the car due to his injuries and the state of the vehicle – his foot was actually pinned inside the car due to the accident.

He was transported by ambulance to Inova Fairfax Hospital and was admitted immediately. Doctors diagnosed him with a left hip fracture and he was operated on, which included the placement  of a permanent surgical plate and screws. He was also diagnosed with multiple toe dislocations which were treated non-operatively and his foot was placed in a cast. Furthermore, he had a scalp laceration sutured (16-20 stitches). He remained in the hospital for seven days following the accident.

As you can imagine, our client endured months and months of pain management, physical therapy, follow-up appointments, setbacks, and rehabilitation. We had to end a mediation when the insurance company did not offer enough to settle the case. We were able to get it resolved after the mediation when the insurance company restarted negotiations.
