$301k settlement in a drunk driver collision - Adamson Ahdoot LLP

$301k settlement in a drunk driver collision

Our client was the restrained operator of a vehicle that stopped for a red light in lane #1 on Associated Road in Brea, California. At the same time, the defendant driver operating a vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed behind a vehicle that was stopped directly behind our client.

The defendant driver failed to yield to the stopped vehicles ahead and rear-ended the vehicle behind our client, pushing it into the rear of our client’s vehicle.

Upon impact, our client struck their chest on the steering wheel of the vehicle. The defendant driver was intoxicated at the time of the collision.

The officer at the scene found the defendant driver at fault for the collision in violation of California Vehicle Code Section CVC 23152 (A) for driving under the influence of alcohol and CVC 22350 for driving at an unsafe speed for the prevailing conditions. USAA Casualty Insurance Company has accepted liability in this matter.

As such, our client was entitled to full compensation for all economic and non-economic damages proximately caused by the defendant’s negligence, including the reasonable value of medical care and expenses incurred.
