$255,000 Recovery For Accident Victims
$255,000 Recovery: Our clients and their daughter were involved in an accident while out celebrating the Christmas holiday. All of our clients were injured in the accident. One was transported immediately to the hospital for treatment and the other two sought treatment the next day from their primary care doctor. The defendant driver and his insurance company admitted fault in the accident. Our office sent offers to both the defendant driver’s insurance company as well as to our client’s UM/UIM insurance company for the policy limits. The defendant’s insurance company tendered the policy limits of $100,000 per person for both of the parents and $5,000 for the lesser injured child. Additionally, our client’s UIM insurance tendered the policy limits of $25,000 per person for both of the parents for a total settlement amount of $255,000 prior to filing suit.
