ARMED TO WIN
I was the driver of a motor vehicle, on August 6, 2006, stopped due to traffic on southbound I-5 in Los Angeles, when struck from the rear by an uninsured vehicle driven by a person with a suspended drivers license. The damage to my vehicle was $4,535.68, including, but not limited to replacement of the exhaust system, rear body panel, rear bumper reinforcement, rear bumper cover, rear bumper lower energy absorber and rear bumper upper energy absorber, and repair of the left quarter panel, right quarter panel, left quarter panel extension, right quarter panel extension and rear floor, and requiring repair from August 16, 2006 through September 14, 2006. The damage to the other vehicle was total. I injured my neck and right shoulder, requiring four neck surgeries and three shoulder surgeries. The third neck surgery resulted in permanent right vocal cord paralysis requiring two vocal cord surgeries, which were unsuccessful. My insurance carrier, since 1990, was the third largest property and casualty insurer in the United States, and my coverage was $1 million for uninsured motorist bodily injury. My insurance carrier refused my repeated demands that they pay me my policy limit, claimed that only my first two neck surgeries were related to the accident, my three right shoulder surgeries were unrelated to the accident, my last two neck surgeries were unrelated to the accident, and since the third neck surgery was unrelated to the accident, the permanent right vocal cord paralysis and two vocal cord surgeries were unrelated to the accident. They delivered a check to me for $750,000.00, which they referred to as an advance, and through their attorney demanded arbitration. My brother, who is in the insurance industry, referred me to Carpenter, Zuckerman & Rowley, because John. Carpenter was successful in trying a case against his company to a jury verdict of $483,524.21, when the policy limit was only $100,000.00, and the company paid the $483,524.21 because it had exposed its insured to personal liability. I spoke with Paul Zuckerman over the telephone, and he arranged to have me transported to his office along with all of my files. I met Mr. Zuckerman, Mr. Carpenter, and an associate named Robert Ounjian. Robert Ounjian, who was promoted to partner, and for good reason, arbitrated my claim at Judicate West on April 30, 2013 and May 1, 2013, and the binding arbitration award was faxed on May 20, 2013. The arbitrator awarded me the remaining $250,000.00 uninsured motorist coverage. Robert was also able to get my former insurance carrier to reimburse me costs in the amount of $14,759.30. Robert Ounjian, who is an excellent attorney, and the entire firm, did an excellent job representing me, and they will do an excellent job representing you too. Their principle is "justice for injured people is more important than insurance company profits." "When your case is with CZ&R, you are armed to win."
