HEAD-ON MOTOR VEHICLE COLLISION IN MIDLAND, TEXAS
Early one morning, our client was traveling on Farm to Market Road 1788 in Midland, Texas on his way to work. As he was traveling on the rural two-lane road, an uninsured driver was traveling eastbound in the opposite direction. The other driver crossed the center yellow stripe and drove into the oncoming traffic, slamming into the front of our client’s vehicle.
As a result of the collision, our client suffered extensive bodily injuries, including a broken toe on his left foot. Our attorney argued that our client’s injuries were the direct result of the negligent actions of the other driver, including.
- Maintaining an unsafe distance from other vehicles;
- Keeping an improper lookout;
- Exhibiting inadequate driver attention;
- Driving distracted;
- Taking improper evasive actions to avoid the collision; and
- Choosing to violate safety rules.
This case settled in pre-litigation, and our clients received compensation for the following:
- Past Medical Expenses;
- Future Medical Expenses;
- Pain and suffering; and
