Charleston, SC (Law Firm Newswire) May 19, 2020 – Earlier this year, attorney Catherine Meehan, successfully negotiated a settlement for a South Carolina woman who was injured in an accident involving a police vehicle.
The $390K settlement included $165,976.67 in past medical expenses, $163,398.68 in future medical fees, and $21,000 in childcare expenses, for the mother of young children. The woman sustained multiple injuries in the accident. Among her injuries were a tear to her left anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and a labral tear to her left hip. The woman had to undergo reconstructive surgery and rehabilitation. Her doctors said she would need extensive future medical treatment for her injuries.
South Carolina police officers are a part of the South Carolina Department of Public Safety (SCDPS). Their mission is to serve and protect the public. At all times while on duty, police officers must conduct themselves with a high standard of professionalism. To ensure police officers appropriately perform their work duties, the SCDPS outlined the Code of Ethics for every member of law enforcement to follow. While adhering to the rules of the SCDPS, police officers must also obey the standards set for the general public, including traffic laws.
Attorney Meehan was able to use dashcam video footage, which captured the accident. As a result, Meehan successfully negotiated on behalf of her client so that she would not need to struggle financially, and instead could focus on recovering after an accident.
