Ryan R. Cox & Associates, LLC Secures $1.15 Million for Car Accident Victim

Ryan R. Cox & Associates recently secured $1.15 Million for a female victim of a St. Charles, Missouri car accident who was injured by a teen driver who took a “joy ride” at excessive speeds. When rounding a curve on Ruth Drive in St. Charles County at a rate 25 miles per hour over the speed limit, the teen crossed over the center line and struck the victim’s vehicle in a head on collision.

Due to the severity of impact, the victim’s steering wheel was broken in half and her lower body was jammed into the dashboard. She lost consciousness before being taken by ambulance to St. Joseph Health Center where she was diagnosed with multiple fractures, including several pelvic fractures and a left distal femur and patellar knee fracture.

Due to the reckless behavior of the teen involved, Mr. Cox was able to maximize his client’s recovery by arguing for a punitive element. The teen’s insurance company also misrepresented the amount of insurance available on the claim and did not volunteer the existence of a $1 Million umbrella policy until Mr. Cox got involved and pursued aggressive litigation.

The behavior of the teen and his insurance company along with the result obtained by Mr. Cox in this case is but one of many examples of why those injured in car collisions need an experienced aggressivepersonal injury attorney on their side.
