After being run off the road in December 2006 by another vehicle, Mrs. Julie Keyes over-corrected and then flipped her vehicle, suffering a hang man’s fracture and bruised spinal cord. She was air-lifted to Flowers Hospital, then sent to a rehab facility, followed by more surgery. She now has difficulty controlling her arms and legs and is unable to walk without assistance or using a wheelchair.
In addition to being her husband’s caregiver after he lost his leg in an auto accident in 1974, Mrs. Keyes also worked full-time at the Florida Welcome Center in Jackson County, Fl, a job she is unable to continue.
The driver of the car that ran her off the road was never found, and Mrs. Keys should have been covered under the uninsured motorists coverage of her insurance policy. She had been told immediately following the accident that her carrier, American International Insurance, would provide coverage.
The jury in Jackson County, FL, awarded Mrs. Keyes over $3.4 in past and future medical expenses, and the remainder is for her physical pain, suffering and disfigurement.
Larry Perry of Perry and Young Law Firm of Panama City, represented Mrs. Keyes.
