Great Personal Injury Settlement for Fender Bender Collision! Minor’s Compromise Approved by the Court!

Recently, our office represented a minor injured in a vehicle collision that resulted in her suffering bruising and tenderness to her left abdomen from the seatbelt she was wearing at the time that her parent’s vehicle was struck from behind. We were able to settle the parent’s cases for a great award. However, since the child was a minor, we had to get approval of her settlement award from the court. We were able to negotiate the lien and significantly reduce the medical liens that were asserted in this matter - increasing the award payment to the minor.

After filing the Petition to Approve the Compromise with the court, we were assigned a hearing date for the court to hear the merits of our Petition to settle. At the hearing, the court granted our Petition and now the settlement award will be placed in a blocked account until our minor becomes an adult and can access the award! This is a great result for our client!
