Facts of the Auto Accident Case

Our 69-year-old client and her husband were driving to Florida for vacation on January 20, 2016. Her husband was driving the family vehicle.

What We Did To Win The Settlement

We settled this case for $240,000 prior to the filing of a lawsuit. The total available insurance policy limits for liability were $250,000. Our client’s medical expenses and other no-fault benefits were paid by her own insurance company and were not part of the $240,000. We obtained all of the medical records and negotiated a pre-suit settlement for our client. We then negotiated the settlement with the liability insurance adjuster.
