Recently, Portner & Shure attorney, Kevin Ruby, obtained an excellent result in a serious rear-end accident caused by a drunk driver. Our client was a passenger in a vehicle that was rear-ended by a drunk driver while stopped at a red light at the intersection of Route 40 and Ridge Road. Our client suffered more than $25,000 in medical expenses, as well as a significant amount of lost wages. He endured nearly four years of treatment for his injuries in the accident. The liability insurance company did not make an offer to settle the case. We proceeded with trial in the Howard County Circuit Court. The jury awarded our client $260,000.00.
