Travis County Jury Awards $462,624 in UM / UIM Verdict

McMinn Law Firm represented a client to suffered serious injuries at the hands of a drunk driver. When that driver turned out to be underinsured, and the injuries serious, the situation became more complicated.

Jason McMinn and Heather McMinn led the charge in the case. The defendant, Farmers, was the client's UM / UIM coverage carrier. Initially Farmers offered $25k to settle at mediation and $75k a few days before trial.

At trial, a Travis County Jury awarded $462,624 to the client of McMinn Law Firm.

"This verdict first and foremost provides needed compensation for our client. Also this award speaks to how the Austin community believes insurance carriers must honor their contracts with their policyholders." - Jason McMinn

If you are in a crash with an uninsured or underinsured motorist, you may have protections from your your own uninsured / underinsured motorist policy. In this situation, the policy did not meet the needs of McMinn Law Firm's injured client when McMinn Law Firm went to settle. Instead Jason McMinn and Heather McMinn led teh charge in Travis County court.
