Case Conclusion Date:May 24, 2012

Practice Area:Personal Injury

Outcome:Settlements of $615,000

Description:My client was rear-ended by a negligent driver and as a result, had to have a fusion surgery in his neck to repair the damage. Unfortunately, the insurance companies combined only provided coverage in the amount of $115,000. However, we were able to show that the insurance company for the defendant made a mistake in its handling of the claim and were able to secure a settlement of $600,000 (which was 6 times the underlying policy-limit). We also obtained all of the other insurance available.
