The accident occurred when a Chevy Suburban crossed the yellow line and smashed into the plaintiff’s car. As a result of the accident the plaintiff suffered a ruptured spleen, internal bleeding, and broken bones in his hip, pelvis and shoulder. He underwent emergency surgery to correct these serious injuries. The plaintiff will eventually need a hip replacement later on in life.
