Uninsured Motorist Claim – $25,000

Recently, we had a case involving a young woman who was hit in an intersection by an uninsured driver.  Luckily our client had the foresight to obtain uninsured motorist coverage prior to the crash.

We helped our client through the claims process with her carrier.  Although she did not have any significant injuries, we were able to obtain a settlement of $25,000, the full policy amount available, to compensate her for her pain and suffering.

This case is a great reminder of the importance of having uninsured motorist coverage.  Without it, our client would not likely have received anything.

Premises Liability Settlement – $170,000

We were privileged to represent a 50-year-old disabled veteran after his motorized wheelchair became lodged in a crack in the sidewalk outside of his apartment.  Although the case was difficult, we were able to prove that the apartment owners knew of the crack and yet failed to do any repairs, despite pleas from our client.

We managed to avoid the time and expense of litigation and settle the case prior to lawsuit for $170,000.  Now, our client is out of the apartment and in a safe, wheelchair friendly home.
