$100,000 Settlement Obtained for Family of Autistic Boy

A ten-year-old autistic boy was outside of his house with his babysitter at an ice cream truck parked across the street from his house.  All of the sudden he darted out into the street and was struck by a car.  He suffered a severe laceration to his head, internal bleeding, and bruising on his arm, legs, and abdomen.  He was transported by ambulance to a children’s hospital where he was admitted for three nights. The driver was a 17-year-old kid from the neighborhood.  We heard that this driver had been speeding and we obtained 911 tapes of two neighbors that had called the police reporting this boy who was speeding.  We took expert photographs of the street where children were present which demonstrated a need for drivers to drive below the speed limit.  Our quick demand to the insurance company with the results of our investigation resulted in us obtaining a $100,000.00 settlement for our client within thirty days.  We also established a pooled trust to preserve our clients Medicaid benefits which were critical for the family.
