Nicolet Law Accident & Injury Lawyers Attorney Secures $700,000 Settlement for Car Accident Victim

Feb 23, 2024

Duluth, Minnesota – Attorney Ryan T. Muir of Nicolet Law Accident & Injury Lawyers has successfully negotiated a $700,000 settlement for a car accident victim in Hermantown, MN. The settlement, reached after mediation failed, marks a significant victory for the client, who was injured in a collision on November 3, 2020.

The client, a retired school paraprofessional, was a passenger in a vehicle when a concrete mixing truck rear-ended them at the intersection of Haines Road and Lindgren Road. Despite an initial whiplash diagnosis, the client’s symptoms persisted, leading to further medical examination. In May 2021, an MRI revealed she had suffered myelomalacia of the spinal cord, ultimately requiring a C5-6 and C6-7 arthroplasty.

”This settlement ensures the client is taken care of going forward and holds those who caused this collision accountable for their actions,” said attorney Muir.

The settlement substantially surpassed the initial pre-suit offer of $300,000, with the final settlement of $700,000 providing essential financial support for the client’s ongoing medical care and recovery. Attorney Muir, along with his dedicated team consisting of Certified Paralegal Brittany Eder and Legal Assistant Tiffany Becker, worked tirelessly to achieve this favorable outcome for their client.

”The settlement not only helps our client put the collision and her injuries behind her but also aids in the healing process for her family,” added attorney Muir.

The case highlights the importance of holding responsible parties accountable for their actions, as well as the crucial role of legal representation in securing just compensation for accident victims. Additionally, the swift action taken by the employer of the driver, who was terminated the day after the collision, underscores the commitment to addressing and rectifying the consequences of the incident.

With this settlement, the client can now move forward with confidence, knowing that she has the support and resources necessary to rebuild her life after the traumatic event.

Attorney Muir and his team remain dedicated to advocating for the rights of accident victims and will continue to provide compassionate and effective legal representation to those in need.
