71 year old injured driver awarded $300,000for her Pain and Suffering

Maxiom Injury Lawyers recently resolved a claim for a client in her early seventies who was involved in a transport accident. Our client was past the age of retirement at the time of the accident, however she was an extremely active person who was still working.

While returning home from work, our client drove through the green light of an intersection. Another vehicle crossing the intersection from the opposite direction cut across and hit her head on. She was assisted out of her vehicle and taken to hospital where her left ankle and left knee were surgically treated. As a result of the accident, she suffered fractures to her left ankle, ribs and neck, lacerations to her knees and developed post-traumatic stress disorder and anxiety. She had no prior medical issues or psychological history.

Maxiom were happy to assist such a well deserving client and to help her secure a settlement of $300,000 plus costs.

The settlement was a fantastic outcome for our client who suffered a dramatic change to her formerly busy and active life.
