Ms. Omari’s medical bills were approximately $230,000, with an additional $37,000 in dental bills, according to documents. The family plans to purchase a single-family home that will meet the needs of Ms. Omari, who now lives with her family in a townhouse that does not accommodate her needs, according to court documents.
In a settlement demand written to the negligent party’s insurance company’s attorneys, Slocumb stated that Ms. Omari became permanently disabled as a result of the accident. Johnny Ross, the driver of the commercial vehicle, which was owned by Mr. Handyman, pleaded guilty on Feb. 21 to improper driving.
“This case shows how someone’s reckless actions can change everything in a second,” Slocumb said. “If you or a loved one is injured in an accident due to negligence, it’s important to speak with an experienced personal injury lawyer about your rights. You will need an aggressive attorney who will make sure the negligent individual or entity is held accountable.”
