Driver T-boned at intersection has hip, pelvic fractures

$1.08 million settlement

Action: Motor vehicle accident

Injuries alleged: Multiple hip and pelvic fractures

Amount: $1,080,000

Date: August 2022

Attorneys: David Yarborough and Alexandra Heaton of Yarborough Applegate Law Firm in Charleston (for the plaintiff)


The plaintiff was traveling on Highway 521 in Williamsburg County on Feb. 7, 2022, when the defendant, traveling on Highway 52, ran a red light and T-boned the driver side of the plaintiff’s vehicle at the intersection of the two highways.

The plaintiff was taken via EMS to McLeod Regional Medical Center and admitted to the ICU. Two days later, she underwent an extensive, complex surgery to repair the fractures to her hip and pelvic region. She spent three weeks in an inpatient rehab facility before being discharged home to continue a long rehabilitative program through a home health service.

From the time of the collision through May 2022, the plaintiff was non-weight bearing.

Pre-suit demands were made for the per person bodily injury and property damage limits from the liability carrier and the available underinsured motorist (UIM) bodily injury coverage.

Both the liability and UIM carriers tendered their policy limits.
