R.T. v. K.G.

Hugh Michael Ruppersburg

Case Conclusion Date:July 10, 2012

Practice Area:Personal Injury

Outcome:$35,000 Settlement For Woman Who Hurt Neck and Back In Car Accident

Description:R.T.'s son was driving on I-20 when his car began having mechanical problems so he pulled off to the side of the road. R.T. went to pick him up and was waiting to pull back onto I-20 when a car ran off the road and rear-ended her at highway speed. Her neck and back were hurt in the accident and she required several months of physical therapy. The case settled for $35,000, which was the entire amount of the at-fault driver's insurance and an additional settlement with R.T.'s underinsured motorist coverage.
