Car Accident, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
An 18-year-old male was a passenger in a car driven by a high school friend. Due to erratic driving, the vehicle careened off the road and rolled down an embankment. In addition to receiving extensive sprains and strains in the accident, our client suffered post traumatic stress, leading to a three day hospitalization in a psychiatric unit. A few days before trial, the case was settled for $700,000.
