Our client was a hard-working and upwardly mobile young man working as a senior programmer for a municipal government. His performance reviews were always stellar, and he was well-liked by his employer. He was a passenger in a car that was struck when another car ignored a stop sign, destroying both vehicles. He sustained a severe traumatic brain injury, which left him with poor memory and problems with attention and concentration. He could not return to work, and he became depressed and anxious. A lawsuit against the involved drivers and his own accident benefits insurer was settled at a pre-trial mediation for more than $2,400,000.
