“Charlie” (not a real person) does not remember what happened very well. He was driving down the freeway after concluding his night shift at work, and has a vague recollection of the bright lights and looming presence of the tractor trailer as it came up the on-ramp towards him. The next thing he recalls is spinning and flipping, loud noises and a dull pain, his car crumpled against the middle barrier and his body broken across the dashboard.
The truck driver had barreled into Charlie when he merged, essentially shoulder-checking at high speed across the highway and into the wall. Charlie suffered extensive injuries, breaking both his legs, his left arm, multiple ribs, his maxilla, and, most dangerously of all, his skull. The investigation later revealed that the truck driver had been hours past his safe driving limit and had appreciable levels of stimulants in his bloodstream.
Charlie was put into a medically induced coma for a few days as the doctors battled to decrease the swelling in his brain. He survived, but the combination of neurological and muscular damage he suffered left Charlie forever a different man.
On the advice of a personal injury attorney, Charlie filed a suit against the driver and the trucking company. However, he still faces an army of lawyers doing everything they can either to bleed him dry or to force him into an unfair settlement.
With astronomical medical bills and his extensive suffering — not to mention the trucking company’s seeming culpability — Charlie’s biggest fear is running so low on money he has to settle for far less than he deserves; it is either that, or risk losing everything.
Charlie’s lawyer suggested a third option: taking his case to USClaims to apply for pre-settlement funding to keep his fight going.
