Schlichter Bogard Obtains $1.1 Million Settlement for Auto Accident Victim

Schlichter Bogard & Denton has obtained a $1.1 million settlement on behalf of a civilian injured in a car wreck with an on-duty New Madrid County police officer.

On July 2, 2021, our client, a resident of New Madrid, Missouri, sustained multiple injuries when the car she was driving southbound on State Highway 61 crashed into a New Madrid County police vehicle that had been traveling northbound before making a sudden left, failing to yield the right of way to our client and totaling both vehicles.

Our client sustained a fractured vertebra in her neck, which required fusion surgery, as well ligament and fibrocartilage tears, torn meniscus, and de Quervain syndrome in her wrist, which required additional surgery.
