Client Awarded $2.1 Million For Devastating Car Accident

$2,100,000

Litigation Type - Car Accidents

Client Injury - Traumatic Brain Injury & PTSD

Jim Carey represented a Chisago City woman who was badly injured when her car was t-boned at an intersection by a vehicle that ran a stop sign. She received significant injuries including a traumatic brain injury and PTSD and was unable to return to work after the accident.

Carey and his team compiled evidence and presented it to a jury on behalf of his client. During the trial, Carey pointed out how the at fault driver's insurance company went to remarkable lengths to avoid its obligation in hopes of reducing compensation owed to our client. It was only after the lawsuit was filed and litigation was initiated that the insurance company admitted their driver was completely at fault and our client was an innocent victim.  Even then, they attempted to minimize her injuries, offering a settlement of just $21,000.

After a six hour deliberation, the jury agreed to a special verdict, awarding our client $2.1 million for past and future damages.
