ATV Accident Involving Drunk Driver Causes Spinal Injury
Our client was a passenger on an all terrain vehicle (ATV) driven by a friend who was under the influence of alcohol. As they were proceeding down a wooded dirt road, the driver lost control as a result of his alcohol consumption and a change in the maneuverability characteristics of the ATV with a passenger seated behind him. The ATV left the road and went down a steep embankment. Our client sustained injuries to her spine which affected the use of her legs and caused a diminution in bowel and bladder sensation.
Because of limited insurance coverage, Paul Schweiger settled her case for $260,000.
