$300,000 Traumatic Brain Injury Settlement for Austin Child
The Loewy Law Firm secured $300,000 for a family here in Austin. The distraught parents came to us because their son had suffered a traumatic brain injury.
The injury occurred when their son was playing outside at a neighbor’s home with a friend. The friend launched a large rock in the air, and the rock struck the son on his head. The rock fractured his head, and he was immediately in intense pain and had to be rushed to St. David’s Emergency Room and then by ambulance to Dell Children’s Medical Center.
After many difficult surgeries, the family had to face a long battle with medical issues.
Personal injury cases like this are often covered by Homeowners’ Insurance. This type of insurance extends to many personal injury situations because it is there to protect property owners and their family from being personally liable in accidents. Our personal injury accident firm investigated this case and found the type of coverage available.
Initially, the Homeowners’ Insurance denied the claim. However, we were able to negotiate and find coverage for them. We ultimately settled the case for the full policy limits. This provided the family with money for their loss of enjoyment, to cover pain and suffering, to pay their son’s medical bills, and to help him with future care.
We are very happy to report that the boy is recovering very well and on the road to health. One of our top motivators in each case is the ability to leave a legacy in the lives of a family. We know that injury situations are some of the worst times in someone’s life, and we are proud to turn that around to provide them with life-changing medical care and money.
