The motivations behind a careless or illegal act while operating a motor vehicle are always hard to explain. In fact‚ following your car accident‚ you may never find out what prompted the other driver to make such an irresponsible or careless decision in the first place.
Our client was driving in Philadelphia when a vehicle‚ traveling in the same direction‚ made a sudden left turn from the right lane crossing in front of her and causing a serious collision. The impact was so severe that the windshield on the defendant’s car blew out. Not only was the defendant negligent in making a left turn from the right lane‚ but there were also signs prohibiting turns onto that cross street altogether.
As a result of the impact, our client suffered serious injuries to her neck back‚ and shoulder. Her doctors informed her that she could no longer perform the duties required of her as a respiratory therapist as she needed more light-duty work as a result of her injuries.
Through a binding arbitration, our client was awarded $350‚000 for her injuries and the impact they had on her life. Now not only can she continue to treat her injuries‚ she has her life back on track.
