Reidun Harjo and her husband were driving when a tractor collided with their car, throwing them off the road and into a ditch. Only moments after the impact, Reidun's husband drew his last breaths and passed away in the seat next to her. Later that night at the hospital, Reidun was examined and found to have sustained a concussion and severe head trauma. Following the accident, she suffered extensive memory loss and was unable to read for a period of time. After talking her situation over with a friend, Reidun decided she could not handle her brain injury case on her own.
Reidun met with Mike Nelson and the NLE team to seek monetary damages for the pain and suffering her accident had caused her. Eventually, Reidun and her team decided to settle her case outside of court to avoid stressful and costly litigation.
