Our client was a resident of Florida who was a passenger in a vehicle with a Massachusetts driver, who was involved in a single vehicle collision in North Carolina. We were associated by Florida counsel in order to file suit in North Carolina, as the collision occurred here. He suffered a back injury which his doctor said was permanent. He incurred over $50,000 in medical expenses and lost 3 months of work. After a hearing in Wayne County Superior Court, we obtained a default judgment in the amount of $1,000,000 plus pre and post-judgement interest and costs.
