On April 14, 2018, Ed and Carol were driving home from dinner when they exited a parking lot onto Naper Blvd. in DuPage County. Within seconds of exiting the parking lot, Ed and Carol were violently struck head-on by a teen driver who lost control of his large pick-up truck, crossed the centerline, and crashed into the front of Ed & Carol’s sedan.
Following the crash, both Ed and Carol were rushed to the emergency room. Ed was required to undergo a neck surgery and two shoulder surgeries. Carol sustained eight rib fractures and a sternum fracture.
Despite Ed & Carol’s serious injuries, the defendant did not offer a settlement prior to the Meyers & Flowers team, led by trial attorneys Jonathan P. Mincieli and Thomas M. Connelly, filing a lawsuit.
In the early stages of litigation, Mr. Mincieli and Mr. Connelly aggressively pursued a settlement for Ed and Carol to earn rightful compensation and gain closure for this life-altering crash, and ultimately obtained favorable deposition testimony from the defendant, who admitted to driving too fast for conditions.
The entire Meyers & Flowers team worked tirelessly to efficiently resolve Ed & Carol’s case within 11 months of filing the lawsuit and incurring minimal litigation costs, allowing Ed & Carol to maximize their recovery.
“A few days after our accident, Peter Flowers came to our home and assured us that his firm would fight for us. While we will always have our injuries, we are very happy with the settlement that Meyers & Flowers was able to negotiate. The team at Meyers & Flowers worked hard for us and showed us empathy. We thank them for all that they did for us,” said Ed.
