Teenage Boy Hit by Car Suffers Serious Brain Injury
Our 13 year-old client had a difficult childhood, with a mother who had been through issues of drug addiction, and a father with a debilitating back injury. Despite his troubled background, the young man persevered. Unfortunately, he was hit by a car while crossing a street in Barrie. He suffered a serious brain injury, as well as a badly broken leg. After the crash, he demonstrated significant cognitive impairments and became unsuccessful in school. He developed social phobias and was unable to attend classes or be gainfully employed. His case was settled at mediation for more than $2,000,000.
