We've been covering a lot of stories of people who got injured and needed some money. When you read about how bad some of the accidents are, you may wonder if the money they get from their settlement will really be enough to cover everything. Often people are dealing with a bad combination of medical bills and being out of work for months or years, which makes it extremely costly.
To answer that question, we've got the story of Craig and Ann Litch. In 2012, Craig was performing electrical work on an oil rig that was powered down. Before he was finished and without any warning, an employee of the company managing the oil rig turned the power back on. Craig was electrocuted, and suffered severe damage to his face and body.
That case wasn't settled until 2016. As you can imagine, Craig had spent the years after his accident trying to recover and unable to work. Fortunately, his attorneys had successfully convinced a jury that the accident was the fault of the company managing the oil rig.
Shockingly, they awarded Craig more than $4,000,000, citing his pain and suffering, loss of income, and medical bills. This included future medical bills, as now that he's gotten his full settlement he'll be able to afford more comprehensive treatments that can more fully repair the damage to his face and body.
On top of this, they awarded his wife an additional $200,000 for loss of consortium. If you've never heard that term before, it basically means that Craig's injuries were so bad that it denied his wife a lot of happiness in her own life.
While the accident Craig suffered was horrific, the money he and his wife won after four long years will go a long way towards making things right. Their lives will never be fully back to normal, but we wanted to show you just how much it's possible to win in a personal injury case like this.
