Rear-Ended by a Drunk Driver

Settlement:
$1,150,000

$1.15 million settlement and complete waiver of a $400,000 worker’s compensation lien for a 41-year-old Illinois state trooper who was rear-ended by a drunk driver and required back surgery. The defendant’s insurer paid their $1million policy limit just prior to trial, and the defendant personally contributed $150,000 of his own money to the settlement.
