Paul Downes Provides Future Security to Injured Child

$487,500

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.
