HIT BY A CAR A HIGHWAY 69
Our client and his daughter were traveling northbound on Highway 69 in Bells, Texas to pick up their dog. Unfortunately, their dog had recently been hit by a car and was on the highway. As they approached the dog, our client stopped the car and turned on his hazard lights. He then got out of the vehicle to pick up his dog from the road.
As our client was walking back to his car with the dog in hand, another vehicle was traveling southbound on Highway 69. The driver failed to keep a proper lookout and hit the front driver’s side of our client’s vehicle and then proceeded to strike our client’s body with their car at high speed. The impact threw our client over the car and onto the asphalt.
Police, fire, and emergency medical services responded to the scene. Miraculously, our client survived the impact. However, the severity of our client’s injuries required that he be air evacuated to the Medical City of Plano for emergency treatment.
This case settled in pre-litigation, and our client received compensation for:
- medical expenses;
- pain and suffering;
- physical impairment; and
- physical disfigurement.
‘Everyone was very helpful and kept us up to date on what was going on. Checking in on us to see how we were doing.’R.O.
