Recently, Portner & Shure settled an auto accident case from November 2014 for $100,000 for our client who suffered devastating injuries in a head-on crash by a drunk driver in Maryland. Our client was in the car along with other members of her family, and their vehicle was trying to make a left turn, when all of a sudden, a drunk driver crossed over the center line and plowed into them. The drunk driver was arrested as a result. There is no liability dispute in this case.
Our client suffered a fractured left upper arm and right ankle. Our client also required an open reduction and internal fixation of her right ankle and her left humerus, which left her completely immobile and unable to walk. The negotiation process, in this case, lasted well over one year and was finally able to settle this month. Christine Airey worked tirelessly negotiating with the insurance carriers to obtain a great settlement for this client.
