$495,000.00 settlement

$495,000.00 settlement obtained on behalf of a woman who was a rear passenger in a vehicle that was stopped on a freeway due to the sudden onset of thick, blinding fog. The passenger began to exit the vehicle when a tractor-trailer rear-ended the vehicle. The force of the impact threw the passenger to the ground causing severe "road rash" on her lower leg which required skin grafts. The passenger also suffered a fractured ankle.
