Injured Farmer Wins Car Accident Compensation
Our client, John, a hardworking farmer, was on his way to work when he was involved in a serious car accident caused by the reckless actions of another driver. The car crash resulted in a fracture of his cervical spine, requiring months of recovery in a halo brace. He required assistance with all of his daily activities and was unable to work for quite some time.
Although no amount of money can fully compensate for the physical and emotional pain John has endured, we are proud to have been able to help him secure a policy limit settlement that will make a meaningful difference in his life. This settlement will allow John to focus on his recovery without the added stress of financial burden.
What is a Fracture of the Cervical Spine?
A cervical spine fracture is a type of injury that occurs when one or more of the seven cervical vertebrae (bones) in the neck break or become damaged. The cervical spine is the uppermost part of the spine that connects the skull to the rest of the body.
A car accident can cause a cervical spine fracture if the force of the impact is strong enough to cause the neck to bend or twist unnaturally. For example, if the car suddenly stops or changes direction, the head and neck may be thrown forward or backward, causing the vertebrae to fracture or become displaced. This can happen even if the person is wearing a seatbelt or if the accident occurs at a relatively low speed.
Cervical spine fractures are serious injuries that can cause a range of symptoms, including neck pain, stiffness, numbness or weakness in the arms or legs, and even paralysis. Treatment may involve immobilizing the neck with a halo brace or collar, and in some cases, surgery may be necessary to stabilize the spine and prevent further damage.
John is Awarded Full Policy Limits for his Injuries
We are pleased to share that our client, John, has received a settlement for the full policy limits of $100,000 following his accident with that reckless driver. Not only will his settlement cover his medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses related to the accident, but also put some money in his pocket for pain and suffering.
We are thrilled to have played a part in securing the financial support he needed so he can move forward with his life and put this accident behind him. Today, John is doing much better.
