$350,000 Settlement for Virginia Beach Truck Accident Victim

What happened: Our client was the driver of a minivan taking his wife home for lunch when the defendant driver turned left in front of him failing to yield the right of way. The resulting collision fractured our client's left kneecap and caused numerous other abrasions and contusions. Our client required an extensive surgical repair of his left knee including the implantation of extensive hardware. This later caused significant pain and several additional surgeries were required to remove the hardware. Our client was an automobile mechanic and missed a signifcant amount of time from work.

Legal strategy: Because this was a case of clear liability, a lawsuit was filed on behalf of the client immediately. For this reason, our client's trial date and release from medical care were very close together allowing the case to settle quickly.

Court/dates: Virginia Beach Circuit Court 2003

Staff: James C. Lewis, attorney; Karen Lorda, litigation assistant


The case was settled for $350,000.00 without the necessity of a trial.
