$40,000An Injured Passenger Receives $40,000 Between Two Drivers
In the Stone Park section of Cook County, a car was going west and allegedly traveling too fast, when another vehicle attempted to improperly turn left, striking the other car, and forcing it to hit a light pole. Ultimately, the passenger in the westbound car was injured and went to Westlake Hospital for imaging. After a few days, the injured passenger was still experiencing pain and sought medical treatment at Elmhurst Memorial, where they diagnosed her with muscle sprains and a fractured clavicle that required five weeks of physical therapy. The injured passenger saw her medical expenses rising, but she did not know how to proceed because both drivers’ may have been at fault. She contacted Staver Accident Injury Lawyers, P.C. for help navigating this process. The experienced attorney Jared Staver represented his client and successfully recovered $25,000 from the driver of the car she was occupying and another $15,000 from the other driver for a total settlement of $40,000.
