The Pittsburgh car accident attorneys at Dallas W. Hartman, P.C. have reached a verdict of $2,200,000.00 for a Mercer County woman injured in a car accident. On Friday, October 23, 2015, a Mercer County Court of Common Pleas entered a jury verdict that awarded the seventy-five-year-old victim of a 2009 car accident $2.2 million.
In 2009, a Stoneboro, Pennsylvania woman was driving south on State Route 173 between Grove City and Mercer, Pennsylvania. At that time, a Venango County man turned in front of her, causing a car accident, as he attempted to enter a parking lot. The impact between this Venango County man’s pickup truck and the victim’s car caused severe injuries.
The victim was life-flighted to St. Elizabeth’s hospital in Youngstown, Ohio and eventually diagnosed with a closed head injury, left forearm fracture, fractured ribs, open fracture of the left shin, fractured left knee cap, fractured left wrist, fractured left ankle, fractured right shin, and open fracture of the right knee cap. Due to her injuries, the victim remained a resident of a care facility. Now, thanks to the money obtained in this lawsuit, the victim will finally be able to return home for the first time since the car accident that injured her.
At trial, the team of car accident lawyers at Dallas W. Hartman, P.C. utilized the testimony of a neuropsychologist expert to testify to the devastating impact that the accident had on the victim’s mental state. They also hired an emergency room medical doctor to review the extensive care that the victim received and a rehab consultant to testify about the widespread rehabilitation that the victim went through and the long-term impact it will have on her life both physically and financially.
