While assisting a stranded motorist, the plaintiff, a 39 year-old husband and father of two teenage daughters, suffered serious injuries after being struck by a heavily intoxicated Massachusetts state employee, who was operating a personal vehicle on a day off. The injuries resulting from the car accident left the plaintiff confined to a wheelchair, with a diagnosis of Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (R.S.D.). Despite implantation of a spinal cord simulator, the plaintiff continues to experience debilitating pain and is not expected to walk again.
The case was settled prior to litigation for the limits of the defendant’s bodily-injury coverage. The plaintiff had no additional under-insurance coverage.
