The Defendant, who was driving drunk, turned immediately in front of the Plaintiff, causing a collision. The Plaintiff suffered a stroke, numerous fractures, (including a neck fracture), a dislocated right knee, a lesion on her liver, stomach bleeding, severe back pain and jaw problems. She was initially hospitalized for one month, before having to return for additional surgeries.
The Defendant was driving his father’s vehicle at the time of the crash and the owner had moved to Mexico. Mr. Netemeyer moved quickly to file a suit against both father and son in Missouri. The Defendants had the case removed to federal court due to diversity of jurisdiction, following the Defendant’s move to Mexico. The federal judge ordered the parties to mediate the case. The case was settled at the mediation for policy limits on 2 insurance policies held by the father.
