Indianapolis Couple Uses Settlement Funds to Better the Community

An Indianapolis couple who were seriously injured as the result of an auto accident on their wedding day is using part of their injury claim settlement to benefit youth in the area. The Republic reports the couple has donated $25,000 to benefit getting children active through cycling.

On June 5, 2010, the couple loaded onto a small tour bus with 15 members of their bridal party to take portraits prior to the ceremony. During the trip to the photo location, the bus driver ran a red light and hit another vehicle. A 29-year-old groomsman was killed and 14 others were injured, including the bride and groom.

The couple filed a lawsuit against the company that organized the wedding and tour bus which argued that negligent acts, such as supplying a bus too small for the party and hiring a driver who was not qualified, led to the Indianapolis Auto Accident.

The couple was awarded an undisclosed sum for the broken vertebrae and traumatic brain injury suffered by the groom. They plan to donate a portion of the award to a non-profit organization that will provide bicycle simulators to groups like the Indianapolis Boys and Girls Club to promote fitness among the city’s youth.

The Indianapolis Personal Injury Lawyers with Stewart and Stewart Injury Lawyers would like to commend the accident victims for taking steps that will surely benefit the lives of people within the community.
