Latent Brain Injury from Wreck Nets $3M
“A woman who claimed she suffered a brain injury when a 90,000-pound cement truck collided with her car has settled her negligence lawsuit for $3 million in the U.S. District Court of South Carolina.
Huanni Yang-Weissman said in her complaint that she suffered a closed-head injury, facial cuts, broken teeth and other injuries in the 2004 collision at a Florence intersection.
But the biggest issue in Yang-Weissman v. South Carolina Prestress Corp., case No. 4:07-CV-3643-RBH, was the invisible damage she claimed: mild traumatic brain injury.”
