$100,000 Auto Accident Settlement Car vs. Pedestrian
In this case, claimant was a pedestrian who was crossing Buffalo Grove Road at Church Road in Buffalo Grove. The defendant, making a left turn, struck him with his vehicle, fracturing the claimant’s left leg at the knee. The claimant sustained a fracture of the “tibial plateau”. The tibia is the major weight-bearing bone below the knee. The tibial plateau is the pathway through which the weight is carried to the lower extremity. A fracture of this part of the body can be treated by walking with a cane for several months, followed by physical therapy. Surgery is also an option. In this case, the claimant chose non-operative care. Commonly, patients with tibial plateau fractures develop premature arthritis.
Claimant’s attorney, Douglas Rallo, made a claim against the at-fault driver’s insurance company, and achieved a settlement of $100,000.
