Attorney Scot Goldberg handled a case in which the victim was a passenger in a vehicle that was turning left when it was struck by another vehicle, which, while traveling at an excessive rate of speed, violated the right of way of the victim and caused a major crash. The victim was admitted to the local trauma center and underwent surgery for repair of hip and pelvic fractures. She then underwent several months of physical therapy and suffered life-threatening complications from her injuries.
The initial offer from the insurance company for the at-fault party was $40,000.00. However, after being presented with a synopsis of the victim’s case at mediation, the case was settled for $480,000.00.
