$100,000Elderly Woman Fractures Sternum In Auto Collision With Settlement of $100,000
Not too long ago, a woman in her mid 80s was driving down York Road in Elmhurst, Illinois of Cook County when she was involved in an automobile collision. The negligent driver was pulling out of a driveway and unfortunately did not see the woman driving towards him. An Elmhurst ambulance immediately responded to the scene and promptly took her to Elmhurst Memorial Hospital where she remained for a week after suffering from a fractured sternum, neck strains and multiple chest contusions. Looking for assistance in this stressful situation, she asked Chicago lawyer Jared Staver of Staver Accident Injury Lawyers, P.C. for help.
Upon being released from the hospital, the woman went through a month long period of physical therapy for her neck strains and fractured sternum that were still causing her distress. Seeing no significant improvements, she went through an additional period of in-home physical therapy. Attorney Staver remained available to her during this time and personally answered all of her concerns moving forward with the personal injury claim process. Under the knowledge and guidance of Staver, our client saw a settlement amount of $100,000 – a sum large enough to cover her medical expenses and other costs associated with the accident.
