Ricci v. Bauman - $600,000
On January 23, 1994, our client’s life was changed forever. A young woman turned left in front of him on Aurora Road and caused a terrible almost head-on collision, totaling his Volkswagen and her truck. The force of the impact was so great that he needed to be extracted out of his vehicle by emergency personnel.
The accident resulted in a fractured femur and wrist, knee derangement, neck injury and closed head injury. In spite of the clear negligence of the defendant, the insurance company defended the case vigorously. It was not until the eve of the trial, after we had hired some of the best experts in the world on accident reconstruction and crashworthiness, that the defendants capitulated and the case was favorably settled.
