On October 5, 2012, a driver violated multiple traffic laws on I-26 in Lexington, SC before wrecking into the back of a family vehicle carrying both parents and three young children. Ms. C felt both panic and pain when the crash occurred. She panicked over what harm may have come to her babies. She felt pain from her head violently being through forward, then backward against the headrest. Mr. C experienced similar emotions and injury. The three young children were all riding in the back of the car, and may have absorbed even more of the impact from the crash than their parents.
Before being transferred to Lexington Medical Center, one of the children screamed out “Mommy, my head hurts!” She continued to experience nausea for the remainder of the day and cried in bed before falling asleep that night.
Ms. C experienced neck pain, headaches, and nausea due to the collision. She remained symptomatic for several months. At therapy appointments, Ms. C described the pain as sharp, throbbing, and constant. She also struggled with sleep due to the stabbing pains along her spine.
Though the Defendant's negligence was never disputed, her insurance company did fight us over the amount of compensation the Lexington family would receive for the injuries sustained in the car wreck. In the end, the insurance carrier made a fair offer, leading Ms. C to profusely thank Kenny and his staff for the time, attention, and kindness shown to her family in a time of need.
