Ms. AB was an educator. While driving home one evening, a car headed in the opposite direction suddenly turned in front of her resulting in a collision. Our client’s car was totaled. Ms. AB suffered a broken wrist which required surgery as well as various bruises and contusions. The driver of the other vehicle was a foreign student who left the country shortly after the accident. Ms. AB’s medical bills as a result of the injuries amounted to thousands of dollars. This office initiated a lawsuit in the Middlesex Superior Court. We enlisted the help of an orthopedic specialist from Massachusetts General Hospital to evaluate her injuries and evaluate her permanent loss of function. As a result of the efforts of this office, Ms AB received a settlement of seventy-five thousand ($75,000.00) dollars together with the payment of her medical bills together with the cost of replacement of her vehicle.
