Our client “Cathy” was walking in a crosswalk when she was struck by an intoxicated motorist and knocked over 30 feet into the roadway.
She was diagnosed at the Emergency Room with countless fractures as well as a traumatic brain injury and remained in a deep coma for 3 weeks. When she finally emerged from her coma, she had no idea who she was or where she was, and could not speak or even recognize her loved ones. Although “Cathy” was a fighter and had a miraculous recovery, it was clear to CIL that it needed to obtain a settlement which would ensure that she was taken care of in the years to come. CIL thus rejected the driver’s offer to settle her claim for $500,000 and filed a lawsuit.
$2,800,000 successfully recovered
Coast Law Group assembled a team of some of the top medical experts in California in order to determine the extent of her injuries including a neurologist, a neuropsychologist, a psychiatrist and a vocational rehabilitation expert. After their tests confirmed the extent of her injuries, Coast Law Group was able to secure a $2,800,000 settlement for Cathy at mediation.
