Litigation Type - Car Accidents
Client Injury - Severe Orthopedic Injuries
Our client was a young man that was driving his vehicle for work-related purposes for the restaurant he was employed by. A teen driver fell asleep at the wheel, crossed the centerline, and struck our client head-on at highway speed. Our client sustained severe orthopedic injuries, including a broken leg, a crushed heel, a broken wrist and a cracked jaw. Multiple surgeries were performed, however, the client was left with permanent injuries.
Cory Whalen settled the case for $500,000 after extensive litigation. A portion of the settlement dollars were used to purchase a guaranteed structured annuity plan that will pay the client periodically over the remainder of his lifetime.
