The car accident attorneys at Meyerkord & Kurth have recovered a $100,000 settlement for a client who suffered injuries as a result of an auto accident. In March, the Missouri State Highway Patrol responded to a two-vehicle crash in rural Franklin County. According to the Patrol, a driver was operating a Ford F-150 traveling eastbound on Missouri 100 when he fell asleep behind the wheel. The Ford veered off the right side of the roadway and struck a mailbox. The driver then overcorrected causing the truck to travel into the path of a westbound vehicle, a Chrysler PT Cruiser. The driver of the Chrysler, John Doe, attempted to avoid a collision by applying his brakes and caused the vehicle to skid. Doe’s attempts were unsuccessful and Ford struck the right corner of Chrysler. Both drivers were transported to the hospital for injuries sustained in the accident. Doe was represented by the personal injury attorneys at Meyerkord & Kurth and was provided $100,000 in compensation for his medical expenses, property damages, and mental anguish.
