Settlement Secured for an Ohio Woman Who Suffered from Traumatic Brain Injury Allegedly Due to Bus Accident
Without having to file and litigate a bus accident lawsuit, the Ohio personal injury lawyers at The Cochran Firm – Ohio were able to secure a confidential settlement for a woman who suffered from traumatic brain injury allegedly due to a bus accident. The Cochran Firm – Ohio is a nationally renowned, full-service Ohio personal injury law firm that represents bus, car, truck and motorcycle accident victims throughout Ohio. According to documents compiled by The Firm on behalf of the victim, on November 1, 2011, a 62-year old Ohio woman was involved in a bus and car accident after the bus driver had failed to stop at a red light, hit her car and caused her to veer into oncoming traffic across the median.
As a result of this motor vehicle accident, the woman hit her head on her car’s steering wheel and was taken to the emergency room at the Good Samaritan Hospital, where she was given a CAT scan of her head and neck. The subsequent diagnosis had determined that the victim had suffered from aphasia (a speech impairment), a closed head injury and anxiety. In the aftermath of the bus accident, the victim also suffered from severe pain, regardless of whether she was sitting or standing, and insomnia.
In the days following the bus accident, the victim went to see her primary care physician and her dentist who diagnosed her with a concussion and post-concussion syndrome, speech impairments, insomnia, leg join pain, severe jaw and neck pain, and a chipped tooth. As part of her treatment for these bus accident injuries, the victim underwent spinal manipulation therapy, electric muscle stimulation and other therapies 3 times per week for 8 weeks. Additionally, she attended 60-minute speech therapy sessions once a week for 7 weeks; despite seeking this speech treatment, however, she will have permanent speech impediments due to her traumatic brain injury.
In the following months, the physical injuries the victim had sustained in the accident were being compounded by the victim developing injuries that were more psychological in nature; she was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder and major depressive disorder. Ultimately, the severe bus accident injuries the victim suffered have permanently disabled her and have destroyed her successful, long-standing career as a teacher. However, with the help of bus accident lawyers at The Cochran Firm, the victim was able to hold the negligent parties accountable and secure a confidential settlement to compensate her for her losses and injuries, as well as her pain, suffering and permanent disabilities.
