placeholder image big

On May 8, 2012, Mr. Waterman implemented the Court-approved settlement of a minor’s car accident claim against the offending driver insured by State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Company. Like his mother, the child was a guest passenger in the victim family automobile being driven by his father in Goochland County, Virginia.

All of the victim family members were rushed to the Emergency Room at VCU’s Medical College of Virginia in Richmond. The child and father were discharged after 2 days, but the mother was hospitalized for a protracted period because of personal injuries caused in the car accident by the allegedly drunk driver being on the wrong side of State Route 250.
