Marcia Evans was injured when a Freightliner tractor, pulling an empty hog trailer, failed to stop for a stop sign, and pulled into the path of the Marcia Evans’ vehicle.

Suffering from a fracture to her right femur, Ms. Evans was lifeflighted to a hospital in Kirksville, Missouri, where she underwent a surgery to rod her femur. After a six day hospital stay she was released.

Following her release from the hospital, Ms. Evans developed complications. In December of 2004, the original rod was surgically removed, and replaced with a shorter rod. After the second surgery, Ms. Evans began a course of rehabilitation that involved physical therapy and aquatic exercise.

After Ms. Evans filed suit, the case was resolved at mediation for $600,000.00
