Box Truck Cuts Off Client On Motorcycle

Client was traveling on I-85 Southbound in the right hand lane on his motorcycle. A box truck driver merged into the right lane, cutting off the client. Client ran into the back of the box truck and slid under his bike for a few hundred yards. Box Truck driver claimed our client was speeding and that client slammed into the back of the truck at a high rate of speed. A witness statement was obtained by a private investigator that refuted the Box Truck driver's theory.

Lumbar Surgery after Motor Vehicle Wreck

Our client's journey to justice began with a devastating motor vehicle accident, necessitating a lumbar discectomy. Facing staggering medical expenses of around $30,000 and a surgery cost exceeding $50,000, the at-fault driver's insurance company offered a mere $8,426.08. This grossly insufficient amount led us to take decisive legal action against the driver.

As the case unfolded, the insurance company revealed a policy limit of just $30,000 for bodily injury liability and appointed legal defense. Undeterred, our client bravely proceeded with the essential surgery. We then escalated the matter, demanding full compensation from the insurance company, unshackled by the policy limits, citing their failure to act in the policyholder's best interest.

In a surprising twist, the insurance company, fully aware of our client's recent surgery, proposed a settlement of the $30,000 policy limit, to be divided among our client and two others injured in the incident. Recognizing this as another attempt to undermine our client's rightful claim, we rejected this offer.

Our persistence and dedication to our client's cause culminated in a landmark settlement of $179,500. This amount not only covered the lion's share of the medical expenses but also represented a significant stand against unfair insurance practices. Of this settlement, a substantial $164,500 was paid directly by the insurance company, with the remaining $15,000 sourced from the insured's policy limits. This victory underscores our commitment to fighting for our clients' rights and securing the compensation they rightfully deserve.

Insurance Company Works In Bad Faith

Driver was driving a family members vehicle when he struck our client causing injuries. The insurance company for the vehicle owner never disclosed that the driver had his own insurance policy. Vehicle owner's insurance made a ridiculously low offer prior to filing suit. After the lawsuit was filed, the insurance company that insured the driver called to ask what was going on. They were told that the vehicle owner's insurance would handle everything and keep them informed. Vehicle owner's insurance did not do any of that and instead put the driver and his insurance company at risk of a judgment well beyond the policy limits. Vehicle owner's insurance company had to pay for their bad faith claims handling and exposure to the driver and his insurance.

Insurance Company Refuses To Protect It's Policy Holder

This resulted in client receiving just compensation for injuries from a driver whose insurance was originally not enough to cover the harms and losses the at fault driver caused.
