On July 21, 2011, Serious Injury Legal Group attorney A.W. Smith obtained another 7 figure result in a lawsuit involving a motor vehicle crash that left a California, Missouri man with serious injuries. On January 29th, 2008, the plaintiff was traveling home from work westbound on U.S. Highway 50 near California, Missouri. The crash occurred when the defendant, who was traveling eastbound on Highway 50, crossed over the center line and violently struck plaintiff’s vehicle in a head-on collision. The plaintiff was taken to University Hospital where he was diagnosed with a fractured pelvis. After several months of therapy and rehabilitation the plaintiff was able to walk again.

Law enforcement determined that the defendant was operating his vehicle under the influence of alcohol. A judgment of $1.1 million was awarded for the plaintiff and his wife following a bench trial. The venue for the case was Miller County Circuit Court in Tuscumbia, Missouri.
