Significant recovery of accident benefits entitlement
A man in his 60s was driving and crashed into a tractor trailer that backed out in front of him. He suffered significant osteomyelitis in his right femur (inflammation of the bone and marrow) and arthritis in his right hip. He had trouble moving around at all. He was very limited in his ability to sit, stand, or walk. He had to use a walker or scooter at all times. We settled his accident benefits entitlement with his auto insurer prior to trial for over half a million dollars, to help pay for extensive medical and rehabilitation needs, income loss, housekeeping benefits, and attendant care.
