Firm settles case for injured executive in the amount of $750,000.00
On May 1, 2001, Bobbe Graaman was on her way to work, taking her usual route of traveling North on I-55. Unfortunately, that day would end with a stay in the local hospital and an uncertain future. At approximately 6:00 a.m. Ms. Graaman approached the exit ramp of Route 126 at I-55 as traffic began to slow. As the traffic came to a virtual halt, a semi-tractor trailer plowed into the rear of Bobbe’s car which struck the back of a van merely in front of her squishing her car like a pop can. Fortunately, the design of the car saved her life. However, the injuries sustained lead her on an odyssey with several doctors and two (2) surgeries.
Bobbe was diagnosed with a form of vertigo. As a result of the horrible collision and the concussion sustained to her outer and inner ear, she was diagnosed with benign proximal positional vertigo or BPPV. This is a condition that often goes undetected in auto collision cases. Fortunately for Bobbe she had the right doctors and the right lawyers. After aggressively seeking the right treatment with the right doctors, her lawyers were armed with the ammunition needed to procure a settlement of three (3) quarters of a millions dollars.
