ACCIDENT & INJURY:
Siro Smith Dickson successfully settled a highway car accident case caused by a drunk driver. The plaintiffs, a very vibrant and active elderly couple, were driving down the highway late at night when they suddenly came upon and hit a truck that had earlier flipped over in the roadway, and was left blocking their lane of travel, without any hazards lights. The driver of the truck lost control and flipped the vehicle because he was drunk. At the scene, he was arrested and charged with drunk driving (DUI). The plaintiff driver received relatively minor injuries, but his wife who was in the front passenger seat sustained serious injuries, including fractured ribs, a hematoma, ankle sprain, and an extended hospital stay and recovery.
