Entrepreneur hurt when his vehicle was hit by another vehicle
Our client, an entrepreneur in his 40’s, was hurt when the vehicle he was driving was hit by a vehicle that was attempting to exit a gas station. In the crash the client suffered injuries to his neck including a herniated disc. He developed significant daily pain in his neck and back. The client tried to work but began losing important customers. Ultimately, the client was forced to sell his successful business for less than it would have been worth if he was healthy. The client initially had a lawyer who recommended settling the case for less than it was worth. He sought a second opinion from Oatley Vigmond. After retaining Oatley Vigmond significant expert accounting evidence was obtained to prove the extent of the economic losses that the client had suffered. The case settled at mediation for $900,000.
