Recently, Portner & Shure settled an auto accident case for $100,000 for our client who was injured in Alexandria, Virginia at Wheeler Avenue and Duke Street. Our client was heading straight, when all of a sudden the Defendant made a left turn in front of him.
Due to our client’s old age and a pre-existing condition that makes it difficult to breathe, the broken ribs he sustained in the accident resulted in a complete lack of oxygen. Our client had to spend several days in and out of the hospital because he could not breathe at all because of the broken ribs combined with his pre-existing condition. Christine Airey, one of our most experienced personal injury paralegals at the firm, was able to settle the case for our client.
