Our Client was a 38 year old unemployed, single male, who was injured in a two-car head-on crash on an upstate road, when he claimed the other car crossed over the double yellow line. The other driver was killed upon impact and we filed suit against the estate of the deceased. The other side’s expert disputed our client’s version of the events and claimed that it was our client who had crossed over. Our client suffered open fractures of both legs requiring open reductions and internal fixations. The case was settled before trial for a total of $711,484, which represented the full proceeds of the deceased’s insurance policy plus $225,000 from the estate.
