Passenger in car where driver has medical issue

Settlement: $230,000

Driver who sustains seizure leads to a settlement of $230,000. The client was a passenger in a car and the driver suffered a seizure, which caused him to crash the car. The client was injured severely and suffered a leg fracture, which required surgery. The driver’s insurance company threatened to use the “sudden medical emergency” defense to argue that the driver’s medical issue did not arise to negligence. Through extensive evaluation of the driver’s prior medical records and medications, Robert Mazow was able to establish that the driver knew, or reasonably should have known, that he could have a seizure when driving. The driver’s insurance company paid the entire insurance coverage available.
