On April 24, 2017, our client David was traveling southbound in the right lane on U.S. 67 when another driver, Mr. Lint attempted to change lanes. Mr. Lint steered into the right lane and struck our client's vehicle.

David attempted to steer away, but David’s car became hooked onto Mr. Lint’s vehicle and Mr. Lint lost control. They eventually came to a stop in the median of the highway.

David suffered serious injuries to his neck and upper back, resulting in a disc replacement surgery. He went to countless physical therapy visits, but he may never fully recover.

Instead of admitting fault, the defendant denied the events that took place. Therefore, we had to aggressively fight this case and filed a lawsuit to fight for justice for him.

How Burger Law Won the Case

After three years of litigation and a mediation, the defendant and his insurance company decided to do the right thing and offered to settle this case.

We were able to obtain a $225,000.00 settlement for our client, just shy of the $250,000.00 policy limit.

This case is a classic example of why it is very important to hire an attorney when you’re seriously injured in a car accident as David was.

Without the assistance of our office David may not have been able to settle this case or get this great of a settlement, as the other driver tried to deny the events that took place.

We also had to work through and reduce liens for David. We are proud to have represented David and are always willing to file suit and use the law to obtain the best results for our clients.
