The Injury Counsel Secures $600,000 Settlement for Victims Injured By Teen Driver

The Injury Counsel Secures $600,000 Settlement for Victims Injured By Teen Driver

ST. LOUIS, MO – When two victims were severely injured by a teen driver that left both hospitalized with injuries ranging from fractured vertebrae to herniated discs, they called on The Injury Counsel to help them recover and get back to work.


Last year, a Boone County teen driver rear-ended a vehicle occupied by victims Jeff and Derrick, causing severe injuries that required hospital treatment and the medical services of an orthopedic surgeon.


Jeff required treatment for a fractured vertebrae and disc protrusions in his lower back, which will likely require surgery in the future.  Derrick had herniated discs that required a two-level discectomy and disc replacement in his neck.


As Jeff and Derrick’s medical bills continued to grow into hundreds of thousands of dollars, and many more expenses to come, The Injury Counsel secured a $600,000 settlement to ensure they had access to the resources needed to pay their bills now, and afford future costs when serious and intrusive surgeries are required.


“With my medical bills piling up, I needed an advocate who could help me navigate my options and obtain a fair settlement to help me pay for the costs of recovery,” Jeff said.  “I found that advocate with David Gregory and The Injury Counsel team.  They were dedicated to securing a fair outcome so I could focus more on my recovery and getting back to work and not the constant stream of medical bills coming in the mail.”


“This was a serious accident with real long-term consequences so choosing an attorney was something we could not afford to get wrong,” said Derrick.  “We could not have made a better decision when we chose David Gregory.  David was always on top of our case, he was in command of the facts and his diligence resulted in a just and fair outcome.”
