Humes J. “Tripp” Franklin, III Received a $175,000 Settlement for Client

Settlement/Verdict:   $175,000 Settlement

A 76-year old woman was a passenger in a vehicle that was involved in a collision at a traffic intersection.  The driver of her vehicle failed to yield the right of way and her vehicle was struck by a cargo van on the passenger’s side.  Liability was not an issue.

She was unconscious immediately following the accident and was transported by helicopter to the University of Virgina.  As a result of the accident, she suffered a laceration to the back of her head and a subarachnoid hemorrhage which caused confusion and short-term memory loss.  She was hospitalized overnight and also required 24-hour care for several weeks after returning home.
