$7,500 – Our mother was in the parking lot of the Aldi grocery store in Belvidere, Illinois, leaning into the car through the rear door on the driver’s side, putting her 5-year-old son into his car seat.

Settled. Our mother was in the parking lot of the Aldi grocery store in Belvidere, Illinois, leaning into the car through the rear door on the driver’s side, putting her 5-year-old son into his car seat. The at-fault driver backed out of a parking spot, struck her vehicle near the driver’s side rear wheel, pinning her left knee between the two cars. Our mother sustained a complex tear of the anterior horn of the lateral meniscus and underwent arthroscopic surgery of her left knee to repair it. American Family.
