A college student was awarded a $490,000 personal injury settlement for serious injuries sustained in a May 2008 auto accident. The student was a passenger in a vehicle that was transporting him back to his college campus. The driver was exceeding the speed limit and lost control of the vehicle causing it to roll several times. The victim sustained serious injuries including a fractured clavicle, hand and wrist, and a partial amputation of his toe.
The victim filed liability claims against the vehicle owner’s insurance carrier and the driver’s personal auto insure carrier, which ultimately led to a $490,000 settlement.
