In a recent case, settlement was reached in an auto vs. auto accident in which a 55 year old man was broad-sided in an intersection by a car which ran a red light. Our client was taken from scene by ambulance to the hospital suffering from blunt force trauma, contusions and dizziness for several days. Our client was in the hospital for two days and then missed 41 days of work. He suffered no broken bones, but there was some loose blood internally in the abdomen area. Included in the settlement of the claim was $8,500 of lost earnings. After his release from the hospital he received physical therapy for soft tissue sprain and strain. The amount of the gross settlement was $100,000.
