Amanda was a passenger in a motor vehicle roll-over accident. She was severely hurt and suffered a traumatic brain injury, which required a lengthy recovery. When she was well enough, she consulted with a lawyer, who indicated that she didn’t have a case.
Fortunately, she decided to get a second opinion from the Utah auto accident attorneys at Gregory & Swapp. After carefully looking at the facts of the case, we quickly saw that she did have a very good case. The end result was a settlement for over $1 million.
Hit by Drunk Driver
A 72 year old was driving as part of his job, delivering flowers for a floral shop. His delivery truck was struck by a drunk driver, killing him instantly. We were able to help the family recover $544,000 for this wrongful death.
Didn't See Motorcyclist
An 18 year-old motorcyclist was driving his motorcycle home from work, when a motorist pulled a U-turn in front of him. He and his motorcycle struck the car and he was killed instantly. Our attorneys were able to collect $350,000 for his family.
Accident with National Attention
A family of three was waiting at a bus stop when they were stuck by a car driven by an 80 year-old driver who had fallen asleep at the wheel. Tragically, the young son was killed, while his mother and sister were severely injured. Allstate Insurance hired an aggressive lawyer to defend their insured driver and offered the family a minimal settlement. The lawyer argued that the driver had 'blacked out' and therefore was not negligent or at fault. The horrific nature of this case made major headlines and attracted a great deal of media attention.
As the family's personal injury attorney, I was able to turn the tables on Allstate and get the family a settlement award in excess of $1.5 million which allowed them to put their life back together after such a horrible tragedy.
