Our client was the passenger in a car that was involved in a minor car accident. He bumped his knee on the dash board. Within two days, it had started to swell, so he went to his doctor who aspirated it. Within a week, he contracted a Methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infection inside the knee. He was told by his doctors that he would someday need a knee replacement after they cleared up the infection, and that the infection caused the need for such surgery. The defendant argued that a minor accident can’t lead to such a catastrophic injury, but they ultimately paid $370,000.00. View our car accidents page here for more info.
