Our client was injured in a collision on Route 15 in the County of Buckingham, Virginia. At the time of the accident, our client was operating a County of Buckingham School vehicle when he was struck by an oncoming vehicle that drove across the center lane.

He sustained a fracture in his left leg that splintered the bone into fragments, a nondisplaced fracture in his right ankle, a laceration on his left hand, rib fractures, facial lacerations including eye lacerations, left eye orbital fracture, and a celiac artery occlusion, including back and neck pain. His lacerations were sutured and he was admitted overnight. He was given pain medication upon discharge and was told to schedule a follow up with his primary care physician as necessary. His fractures were treated non-operatively.

He incurred a total of over $60,000 in medical expenses as a result of this accident. He further incurred over $6,000 in lost wages.

This case was ultimately settled for $231,362. It took several exchanges and requests for reduction on the workers’ compensation lien, but we were able to resolve the case to the satisfaction of our client.
