$1.1 Million for Professor’s Mental Health Injury in Auto Accident

A Ph.D. student in mathematics just shy of earning his degree, was conducting very promising research as a 2-year Honored Fellow at the prestigious Institute for Advanced Studies at Princeton University, where Albert Einstein had worked, and looking forward to his first position as a professor at the University of Illinois, when his car was rear-ended by an Amtrak truck on Route 1, causing him loss of memory and, subsequently, severe depression. A professor who cannot remember or think clearly cannot produce research; so our client lost his job as a result of the accident. Personal injury attorney Edward Slaughter, Jr. had to fight the additional challenges of bias against mental health injury as well as the usual auto injury case challenges.
