As a result of this truck crash, our client fractured both hips, her right wrist, 3 ribs and suffered from a severe concussion. Despite our client being covered by a Limited Tort insurance policy, the aggressive investigation and pursuit of a recovery by Jon Ostroff for our client led to this substantial $900,000 settlement only 6 months after this crash.
