Case Conclusion Date:April 1, 2011
Practice Area:Personal Injury
Description:This case arose out of a high speed rear-end automobile collision, which caused serious personal injuries to our client. Our clientâ€™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 Firemanâ€™s Fund. While the negligent driverâ€™s carrier quickly resolved the matter, our clientsâ€™ own insurers dragged the matter out. After retaining experts and after discrediting the insurance companiesâ€™ experts, the carriers paid their policies to avoid arbitration and the risk of future bad faith claims.
