Jasper County, Illinois Accident Results in $86,000 Settlement
Our client Trevor was a passenger involved in a single vehicle accident in Jasper County, Illinois. The driver of the truck was going well over the speed limit when he missed a T intersection and drove into a steep ravine. Trevor immediately felt a sharp pain in his shoulder and was taken to the hospital where he learned that his shoulder had been dislocated causing a fracture as well. Luckily for Trevor, he was young and was able to avoid more serious injury or surgery. After a few months of physical therapy, Trevor, a union pipefitter, was released to full duty at work.
Trevor hired our firm to help him negotiate with the driver's insurance company. After several weeks of negotiations, we were able to a settlement of $86,000.00 on Trevor's behalf, without ever having to file a lawsuit.
