On July 13, 2018 a 70 year-old retired police captain was driving through Rockingham County, when he was struck by another vehice. The other driver had not kept a reasonable lookout and did not yield the right of way. The property damage was extensive and the injuries necessitated a med-flight to the hospital.
The plaintiff reached out to David M. Williams at the Stafford office of Allen & Allen. The plaintiff had sustained multiple traumatic injuries and diagnoses, including a concussion/scalp hematoma, cervical facet fracture, thoracic spine fracture, sternal fracture, collapsed lung, oropharyngeal dysphagia, hypoxic respiratory failure requiring mechanical ventilation/intubation, wrist contusion, rib fracture, cervical strain and myofascial pain syndrome.
The plaintiff has since had a successful recovery. The case settled several weeks after an initial mediation, for $1,200,000.
