Gianna*, a 59-year-old woman, was severely injured in a traffic accident involving an empty school bus that ran a red light. Jacoby & Meyers fought for her rights and secured a $1.85 million settlement to cover the damages.
Background of the Case
On the fateful day, Gianna was making a left turn from Falcon Ridge onto Beech Ave when the defendant’s empty school bus, traveling southbound on Beech Ave, ran a red light and collided with her car.
This collision caused extensive damage to both vehicles and led to Gianna’s car crashing into another vehicle attempting a left turn onto Beech Ave from an adjacent lane.
Consequently, the latter vehicle was forced onto the center median. The accident resulted in significant damage to all vehicles involved.
Impact on the Client
The accident left Gianna with multiple injuries, including a fractured nose, right-sided body pain, a broken nail, and back pain. The severity of her pain made it difficult for her to sleep, lie on her side, and carry out everyday tasks such as sitting, standing, and spending time with her dogs or grandchild.
In addition to the physical injuries, the accident took an emotional toll on Gianna. She could no longer partake in activities she once enjoyed, such as riding her motorcycle, and struggled to cope with the emotional trauma from the accident. The injuries necessitated extensive medical treatment, including surgery.
