Ellis Injury Law Secures $610,000 Car Accident Settlement
On August 6, 2020, Ellis Injury Law secured a favorable personal injury settlement for a client who was seriously harmed by an impaired driver. The case was settled by associate attorney Brandon Corday, an essential member of our legal team.
$610,000 settlement recovered for car accident victim
Ellis Injury Law filed a personal injury lawsuit in the United States District Court, District of Colorado on behalf of our client. The plaintiff suffered serious injuries when a driver – who was under the influence of marijuana — struck his vehicle on Interstate 70 in Colorado during heavy snow. Given the inclement weather conditions, coupled with the velocity of the impact, the plaintiff needed extensive medical treatment, including neck surgery.
Defense claims pre-existing conditions
The defense claimed our client had pre-existing conditions and was injured in a previous incident, attempting to avert liability. Both parties enlisted expert testimony, which ultimately proved unsuccessful for the defense who failed to demonstrate that a prior accident caused the plaintiff’s injuries. In the end, our client was awarded $610,000.00 in damages.
