$40, 000 Settlement in Lane Changing Accident

Not long ago, a man was driving in the exit lane when another driver swerved into his vehicle while attempting to change lanes. The man’s car was struck on the passenger side and he was taken via ambulance to Advocate Christ Medical Center. He suffered severe blunt head trauma including a concussion and subdural hemorrhage as well as abrasions to his face and injuries to his neck and back.

After remaining in the hospital for two days, he underwent months of extensive physical therapy for injuries to his neck and back. Then, he retained the Chicago auto accident lawyers with Staver Accident Injury Lawyers, P.C., who reached a $40, 000 settlement for his injuries, pain, and suffering.

The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
