$152,000 settlement in case of New Mexico auto accident casing loss of future career opertunities
A driver ran a stop sign while on a field call for his employer, causing a severe auto accident with our client. The accident aggravated our client’s preexisting shoulder injury which rendered her unable to continue working at her then-current job. Furthermore, our client had spent several years prior setting up her own art framing business; she had licensed her business and obtained specialized equipment just months before the auto accident. As her art framing business would require extensive use of her shoulder, she was unable to realize and maintain her business after the accident. Therefore, in addition to compensation for her physical injuries, Will Ferguson & Associates sought compensation on her behalf for her lost economic opportunity and secured a settlement for $152,000.00.
