$3,800,000 Pre-Suit Settlement for Closed-Head Injury


After 71-year-old Terry was seriously injured when his vehicle was struck by a tractor-trailer, he and his wife turned to Raynes & Lawn for help. Tim Lawn and Regina Foley led the Raynes & Lawn team who took on the out-of-state trucking company. Terry had a remarkable physical recovery from his orthopedic injuries, but continued to suffer from the effects of the closed-head injury. Because the effects on short term memory and cognitive processing were not noticeable during short interactions, Lawn and Foley completed video interviews of friends and family, who could vividly describe the changes in Terry. Once it received the video settlement presentation, the trucking company requested mediation even before suit was filed. The case resolved for $3,800,000.
