Client's settlements from third party and Under Insured Motorist coverage totaled $500,000
Oscar B., an 82 year-old man, was on his way to a friend’s house to watch a football game. He was traveling east on SR 113 in Hilltown Township, Bucks County PA when he was struck head on by a drunk driver who was traveling in the opposite direction, and crossed over the double yellow line. The man that hit him was charged with DUI, disregarding traffic lines and careless driving.
Our client was taken to the hospital by ambulance and was diagnosed with multiple lacerations and abrasions, a puncture wound of the left arm, and a fracture of the T-7/8 which was treated with a TLSO brace. His recovery was complicated by the development of pneumonia and a Stage 4 Sacral pressure wound.
Our client’s settlements from third party and Under Insured Motorist coverage totaled $500,000.
