$850,000 Car Wreck Settlement Alert

  • 850k Car Wreck Settlement

    The Hughes & Coleman Injury Lawyers team recently obtained a settlement of $850,000 for a Bowling Green, KY client.

    On August 20th, 2021, Ms. Freeman was traveling south down Three Springs Road, about to pass Fred Lively Road. As she approached the intersection, an individual who commonly worked in the area pulled out in front of her in a Ford F-150 truck with a trailer attached. As the truck pulled out, Ms. Freeman was forced to swerve her vehicle off the right shoulder, taking her and her 1 year old daughter with it. The vehicle continued off-road, flipping around four times, and ejecting Ms. Freeman into the air on the second roll. Her car ended up coming to a stop in a ditch. Fortunately her daughter sustained minor bruising from the car seat harness, but Ms. Freeman was left with severe injuries.

    EMS was called to the scene by multiple witnesses. When they arrived, Ms. Freeman was alert but unable to move. She was then life-flighted to Vanderbilt for further examination and treatment. She ended up having a broken tailbone, a fractured and dislocated left hip, her pelvis was broken on both sides, and her right hip needed a plate and screws to repair. The doctors told her there was potential she was going to need a whole new pelvis and to be taught how to walk again.

    Three days after the accident, Ms. Freeman’s husband gave our team a call, and she became our client. Our team immediately started gathering evidence and entering into negotiations with the defendant’s insurance company. In less than a year, the Hughes and Coleman team was able to secure a settlement of $850,000 for Ms. Freeman, which ended up covering all of her medical expenses and lost wages.

    Although we are well aware that money doesn’t fix everything, Ms. Freeman was very happy with our services and the recovery we obtained for her. Our team at Hughes & Coleman Injury Lawyers will always fight our hardest to get the money each of our clients deserve.
