Successful Case Results & Settlements for Recent Automobile Negligence Claims

Nov 14, 2016 | Car Accidents, Firm News

Car accidents are one of the leading grounds for personal injury claims in Florida. Negligent motorists are all around, and put other drivers in unreasonable danger. If and when they cause an accident, they should be the ones paying the bills and covering the damages.

At Willis Law, P.A., our Boca Raton car accident attorney works hard to get our clients the maximized compensation they deserve after being struck by negligent and reckless drivers. In addition to our 20+ years of legal experience, we believe our recent case results and settlements in car accident cases speak well on our behalf.

Recent automobile negligence case wins – client identity kept private – include:

  • $500,000: A woman was climbing into the backseat of a car when the driver suddenly started to pull away. Her foot not yet in the vehicle was dragged painfully on the ground for some distance. It ultimately caused Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), a lingering or lifelong condition.
  • $100,000 (policy limit): While riding as a passenger, a teenage boy suffered a broken arm after the vehicle was T-boned.
  • $100,000 (policy limit): A male teenager was riding in a car as a passenger when the vehicle was T-boned. Our client suffered facial bone fractures and a fracture of the left orbital into his jaw. The resulting injuries were excruciating and potentially disfiguring.
  • $120,000: A man was driving his vehicle when it was T-boned by another driver. He suffered a fractured vertebra that luckily healed on its own without the need for surgical intervention.
  • $100,000 (policy limit): A woman’s car was rear-ended by a vehicle traveling at a much higher rate of speed, causing a devastating collision. She suffered multiple back injuries and a meniscal tear.

  • $104,726 (policy limit): An intoxicated man was driving a vehicle, in which our client rode as a passenger. The drunk motorist lost control of the car and flipped it, resulting in a crash that killed another passengers and severely injured our client.

  • $100,000 (policy limit): A man was driving his vehicle when he was rear-ended. The impact was strong enough to cause a back injury that needed surgery to correct.
