A man was traveling with the normal speed of traffic but was struck on the rear passenger side by another vehicle, while it was attempting to change lanes. The impact of this rear-end collision caused the man’s car to spin out of control and strike a support pole. He was taken to Cook County Hospital via EMS, where he was treated for a displaced fracture of his left tibia, a meniscus tear in his left knee, and pulmonary contusion. After a night in the hospital, he was discharged with an immobilizer and crutches. The man was also forced to undergo surgery for both the displaced fracture and meniscus tear in his knee. The attorneys with Staver Accident Injury Lawyers, P.C. dealt with the matter on his behalf and secured a settlement for $50,000 for damages, including his injuries, loss of normal life, pain and suffering, and medical bills.
