Wrist injury threatens computer career.

Location :: Rochester

Kara was a single mom worried about how she would ever put her two young girls through college someday. She put herself back through school, earning a computer programming degree and beginning a new career. When a day-dreaming driver crossed Highway 52 and collided with Kara's car her dreams were in doubt. Kara's doctors said the ligament damage in her wrist may need to be surgically fused which could cost her the career she worked so hard for. The insurance company wanted to pay less than $50,000. By working with Kara's doctors and vocational experts, we were able to show how serious Kara's injuries were and how they were threatening her career. On the eve of trial the insurance companies settled Kara's case for over $700,000, protecting Kara's dream of putting her daughters through college.
