A distracted driver crossed the center road and hit a car with four adults in it. All of the adults were injured, but the passenger seated behind the driver took the brunt of the impact. Being 6’4” and riding in a compact car resulted in our clients head striking the top of the car. The force of the impact split his skin on his forehead leaving a significant scar. The defense claimed had our client been wearing his seatbelt he would not have sustained an injury at all. Trial Partner Victoria Lightcap was able to show with an animation that regardless of whether he had his seatbelt on or not, his head still would have hit the ceiling of the car and likely sustained the same injury. The case was settled at a mediation for $700,000.
