The plaintiff was walking through the parking lot of the Newton Wellesley Hospital when a car pulled away from the curb and struck her.  Liability was contested.

The plaintiff underwent a course of care, including physical therapy, steroid injections, and pain management.  She was limited in her employment due to her disability.

Plaintiff’s counsel successfully convinced the liability carrier of the negligence of their insured driver and the seriousness of the plaintiff’s injuries, and settled the case for the maximum policy limits.
