A Massachusetts woman was driving home to the Berkshires when her SUV was hit by a van that was operated by a driver who fell asleep. The driver of the van was later diagnosed with narcolepsy. The woman’s vehicle skidded and flipped over. She was taken to a local emergency room but was discharged with a diagnosis of only a trapezius strain. Six months later, she was diagnosed with post-concussion syndrome and post-traumatic stress disorder. The woman had suffered a brain injury, and had developed chronic headaches, a mood disorder and sleep disturbances. She later settled her case for $500,000 for her injuries resulting from the car accident.
