$2 Million – Auto Crash Settlement

On a seemingly ordinary day in St. Louis County, Missouri, tragedy struck at the intersection of Fox Creek and Highway 100. What began as a routine commute home from work for our client, a dedicated collegiate softball coach, ended in a harrowing car crash that changed her life forever. Let’s delve into the details of this unfortunate event and its aftermath.

Encounter on Fox Creek Road Leads to Tragic Car Crash

It was June 2018, a clear and dry day, when our client set out on her journey home. Little did she know she would soon encounter a negligent driver whose reckless actions would alter the course of her life. As she approached the intersection, the at-fault defendant carelessly disregarded a stop sign, setting off a chain of events that led to a devastating T-bone collision.

The impact of the crash was severe and immediate. Our client’s vehicle spun out of control, ultimately flipping over. Then, the chaos ensued. She lost consciousness, signaling the gravity of her injuries. Emergency responders rushed her to the hospital.

Fortunately, our client was not alone in her account of the car accident. Two witnesses came forward, providing crucial support for her version of events. Their testimonies corroborated her claim that the defendant’s failure to obey traffic laws was the primary cause of the collision.

Devastating Impact Causes Significant Injury to Our Client

The aftermath of the crash left our client with a litany of injuries, each more debilitating than the last. From a permanent traumatic brain injury (TBI) to fractures in her lumbar spine, the toll on her physical well-being was profound. Additionally, she suffered injuries to her chest, hip, shoulder, ankle, and back, as well as ligament and subscapularis tears, compounding her pain and suffering.

Recovering from such catastrophic injuries was no easy feat. Moreover, she embarked on a rigorous regimen of neurological physical therapy, striving to reclaim some semblance of her former life despite the daunting obstacles in her path.

The story of our client’s tragic car crash serves as a poignant reminder of the far-reaching impact of negligence behind the wheel.

How Finney Injury Law Secured Justice and Closure for Our Client

Despite the clear evidence pointing to the defendant’s culpability, the road to justice was fraught with obstacles, including the callous refusal of the defendant’s insurance to provide adequate compensation to our client. The initial offer of $63,636.00 fell egregiously short of addressing the pain and suffering our client endured.

Undeterred by these challenges, the litigation attorneys at Finney Injury Law stood by our client every step of the way, advocating tirelessly on her behalf. With a steadfast commitment to seeking rightful restitution, we pursued legal action, filing a lawsuit to hold the responsible party accountable.

Through perseverance and diligent negotiation, our litigation lawyers ultimately secured a settlement of $2,000,000.00 for our client before trial—a testament to the strength of her case and the tenacity of our legal team. This substantial sum reflects not only the severity of our client’s injuries but also acknowledges the lifelong repercussions she will face because of this tragic event.

As our client, a young, active, and athletic woman, continues to navigate the challenges posed by her permanent injuries. We are heartened by her satisfaction with the outcome. While no amount of compensation can fully restore what was lost, we take solace in knowing that our efforts have provided her with a measure of closure and financial security as she moves forward with her life.
