30 YEAR OLD MALE FACIAL BURNS
FACTS: Our client, a 30-year-old male, was driving his pick-up truck when rear-ended by a municipal bus that skidded on a wet surface through an intersection. Several passengers on the bus testified the driver had been operating the bus recklessly and had accelerated through prior intersections before colliding into the rear of our client’s vehicle. The impact being so severe it caused a horrific explosion severely burning our client’s face and head. He was caused to wear tissue expanders for several four-month intervals in order to decrease the scarring to his scalp.
We were able to negotiate a $2.5 million settlement with the municipality only six months after filing suit.
