Policy-limit recovery for injured pedestrian.

Todd Christopher Werts

Case Conclusion Date:June 9, 2010

Practice Area:Personal Injury

Outcome:Policy-limit settlement.

Description:Our client was crossing a downtown Columbia street when he was struck by a car making a left-hand turn. Our client was a wheelchair-bound young man who had severed his spinal cord during a car accident 15 years earlier. Our client, who was paralyzed from the mid-chest down, had limited medical bills, but the injuries he sustained caused permanent damage to several parts of his body. When the client came to our office, he already had a modest offer from the insurance company. After our office became involved, our client ultimately resolved his case for the overall policy-limit of the defendant driver which was several times more than his original offer.
