Practice Area: Car accident
Outcome: Record Short Trial Jury Verdict $758,000.00
Description: This case was placed into the Short Trial Program by agreement of the Plaintiff and her insurer, Allstate Insurance. The Plaintiff had previously settled with the at fault driver who caused the accident for her policy limits. The Plaintiff and her insurer agreed to resolve the issue using the Short Trial Program. After hearing the testimony, the Jury held that the Plaintiff's damages were in excess of $750,000.00. Unfortunately, this greatly exceeded the limits of her Under Insured Motorist Coverage which was the agreed cap of the award.
