The plaintiff, a 30-year-old professional consultant, was traveling northbound on Route 3 near Hingham, Massachusetts in his 1997 Range Rover Discovery auto. At the same time, the defendant’s auto vehicle, traveling in the same direction as the plaintiff, lost its rear axle, causing the defendant to lose control of his vehicle and strike the plaintiff’s vehicle at high speed. The impact caused the plaintiff’s auto to roll over several times before coming to rest in the left lane of Route 3.
As a result of the incident, the plaintiff sustained multiple trauma, including a left clavicular fracture. In addition, the plaintiff sustained an abrasion to his left cheek and left elbow and a distal tip abrasion with flap avulsion to his right fourth finger.
Over the months that followed, the plaintiff continued to experience marked weakness in his left arm and was ultimately diagnosed as suffering traumatically induced, left axillary nerve palsy with resolving paralysis of the deltoid musculature.
The plaintiff’s total auto accident-related medical bills were approximately $16,000.
