Our client was a highly successful young accountant with a multinational accounting firm. She was hurt in a crash when another driver made a left turn in front of her. She developed chronic pain, post-traumatic stress disorder, depression and cognitive problems. She could no longer meet the demands of her busy job, and her career spiraled downward. Although she continued to work full-time, her dream of becoming a partner in the accounting firm was out of reach. She left the job and found work in a less stressful environment, with little room for promotion. The case was settled prior to trial for a total award of more than $1,000,000.
