Litigation Type - Car Accidents
Client Injury - Multiple Facial Fractures
Our client was a 9 year old girl who was riding in a vehicle driven by her sister. She lost control of the vehicle on a gravel road and the vehicle rolled over. Our client was thrown from the vehicle. She was airlifted from the scene to the hospital and was hospitalized for 8 days. She received multiple fractures to her face, jaw, mouth, ribs and arm. She underwent 3 separate surgical procedures and her doctors predict she will require future surgery. She also has extensive scarring that will require plastic surgery. Her medical bills exceeded $146,000.
Paul Downes convinced the health insurance carrier to waive their subrogation claims for the medical bills and settled the case for $487,500; a settlement that was invested as an annuity that will total $818,440 at final payout.
