Legal Issues in the Case

  • Was the driver covered by any applicable insurance policy?
  • How much compensation should be paid in a settlement?

What We Did to Win the Settlement

Our auto accident lawyers commenced an investigation and obtained the relevant medical records and police documentation, including dash cam video and audio of the interview and subsequent arrest of the at fault driver, which demonstrated her intoxication.

We also investigated and were able to discover an insurance policy both for the owner and operator of the at fault motor vehicle.

We opened claims with each insurance company and actively pursued negotiations going forward.

Through negotiation, we negotiated a settlement of $90,000.00 at our client’s request which included compensation for her pain and suffering and loss of social pleasures. We were able to achieve the settlement in the pre-litigation phase, without the need for costly and lengthy litigation.
