The plaintiff was the restrained front-seat passenger in a Dodge Caravan auto operated by her husband, traveling South on Neponset Street in Norwood, Massachusetts. At the same time, the Defendant, in the course of his employment, was operating his vehicle westerly on Access Road in Norwood, Massachusetts. As the plaintiff approached the intersection of Neponset Street and Access Road, the defendant proceeded through a stop sign and directly into the plaintiffs’ path of travel. As the defendant’s auto struck the Plaintiff’s auto, the plaintiff braced herself for the impact by placing her feet on the dashboard. The impact was violent, causing the plaintiff’s upper body to be thrown violently forward into the dashboard. As a result of the impact, the plaintiff’s vehicle was declared a total loss.
The plaintiff was ultimately diagnosed as suffering a torn retinaculum; a torn lunotriquetral ligament and a partial tear of her ulnar collateral ligament, requiring two surgeries to repair. Medical expenses resulting from the auto accident totaled $13,343.
