A Virginia Beach family recently settled multiple cases regarding a horrific car accident. The family was in a small car when they were rear-ended by a truck so violently that the trunk of the small car was forced into the passenger compartment. The two children in the back seat were buckled into their car seats and slammed into the headrests in the front seats.

Goldstein & Associates, PLLC, the attorneys are dedicated to seek maximum compensation.
The child sitting in the passenger back seat was unresponsive at the scene of the accident and was immediately rushed to the hospital. She was in a coma for several days and when she was brought out of the coma she went through some extensive rehabilitation therapy and was able to regain the use of her left arm and leg. She had multiple CT and MRI scans which revealed massive and permanent brain damage in her frontal lobe, associated with cognitive thinking.
It was clear this little girl would need extensive medical treatment in the future and special attention in education. The family agreed to a settlement that included a trust to be created to provide for her short term educational and medical needs, as well as, a separate settlement guaranteed $21M over the child's lifetime.
