Our client, a 14-year-old female, was injured in a roll over collision. She sustained a severe injury to her right shoulder that required surgery and prolonged physical therapy. As a result, she suffered a significant reduction in lifting strength and was no longer able to compete in school sports. In addition, she was forced to miss 36 days of school due to her injury. Following payment of all medical bills and attorney fees, our client netted over $55,000. Because of her age, the client's family elected to place over $53,000 of this award in an annuity, which will earn interest until the client uses it for her college education.
