Auto Accident



Client v. Defendant Employee of Construction Sign Company and Company

Plaintiff’s Attorney: Robert H. Pedroli, Jr.

Type Of Claim: While traveling east on I-64 in Chesterfield client slammed on brakes and swerved to avoid traffic control worker who ran onto the highway to place a construction traffic warning sign in the inside lane, near Boones Crossing.

Damages: Non-displaced fracture of thumb and cut on forehead about 1 1/2″ with small residual scar. Client underwent laceration closure in emergency room by plastic surgeon. Accident occurred one week before plaintiff’s wedding and honeymoon.

Medical Bills:$4,100

Total Settlement:$141,600

Comment: The plaintiff’s scar was most pronounced at the time of her wedding and she had to alter her hair style to try to hide the scar. We effectively argued that a jury, especially the female members, would certainly understand the affect that this injury had on the plaintiff. The wedding was relatively large and involved many out of town guests.
