Ambulance Accident Victim Wins $117 Million
The attorneys at Arnold & Itkin were able to successfully see this case to a verdict for their injured client.
Arnold & Itkin LLP took on the case of a woman who was injured back in 2010. The woman was pregnant at the time and started experiencing severe stomach pains. The woman called an ambulance to take her to the emergency room. Acadian Ambulance showed up shortly after to transport her. Little did the woman know that the driver of her ambulance had a poor driving record as well as bad eye sight. On their way to the hospital, the driver dropped his RSI device on the ground and proceeded to pick it up. He took his eyes completely off of the road to grab it and while he was doing so, drove directly into the back of a sugar cane truck. The woman's spine was severed in the accident and also suffered severe brain trauma. She will never be able to fully recover and is bound to a wheel chair for the remainder of her life.
At the time the verdict was reached, the woman had already been forced to pay medical bills over $1.4 million. Over the course of the woman's future, this would total to about $30 million. Also a tragic component to the accident, the woman's unborn child was born prematurely. Although she was delivered healthy, doctors are concerned that she may suffer health side effects as a result of the premature birth. Since the mother has no capacity to care for her daughter or the daughter that she had prior to the accident, they both have to live with their grandmother. The attorneys at Arnold & Itkin petitioned that the victim as well as her two daughters deserved compensation for this gross act of negligence. When the verdict was reached, she was awarded $117 million.
