John Doe vs. Allstate and Fireman's Fund

George Reed Kindley

Case Conclusion Date:April 1, 2011

Practice Area:Personal Injury

Outcome:$750,000

Description:This case arose out of a high speed rear-end automobile collision, which caused serious personal injuries to our client. Our client’s past medical specials totaled approximately $23,000.00. Future injections and care were at issue in this case but disputed by the insurance companies. Our client, a successful business owner and the devoted father of three, wanted a fair and just outcome from the insurance companies (including his own). The third party driver that caused the accident only carried $50,000.00 in liability insurance. The carrier for the third party immediately tendered their policy. Fortunately, our client maintained underinsured motorist coverage and excess underinsured motorist coverage with Allstate and Fireman’s Fund. While the negligent driver’s carrier quickly resolved the matter, our clients’ own insurers dragged the matter out. After retaining experts and after discrediting the insurance companies’ experts, the carriers paid their policies to avoid arbitration and the risk of future bad faith claims.
