This is really hard to watch.
First things first: apparently everyone survived, and the baby and toddler are currently stabilized and recovering in the hospital, but that will not be super helpful to your stress level while/immediately after viewing. If you are currently the mother of young children, have a drink ready or your chosen method of self-care for when the video is done, because you will need it.
Accident reports by county
This client had a chronic health condition that made surgery a risky proposition. I argued to the insurance adjuster that her non-economic damages would, in fact, be higher since she was unable to safely undergo the recommended procedure.
I submitted very thorough demands on this case. The liability carrier quickly tendered its policy limits of $30,000. I was eventually able to get the client’s underinsured motorist carrier to tender its policy limits of $250,000.
It took him many months to recover from his injury and physical therapy was a time-consuming and burdensome process. I made the case about a human being – not some medical bills. I’m very proud we were able to obtain a $45,500 recovery even though the medical bills were below $5,000.
The surgery was successful and she made a strong recovery. Rotator cuff injuries can greatly impact your activities of daily living so I was pleased with the settlement and the client’s recovery.
Of course, you’re probably thinking,”Do we really want teen drivers in control of 40 tons of metal and cargo? They cause enough accidents driving standard 4-door sedans!”
Prior to submitting the settlement proposal I ran a detailed background search of the at-fault commercial driver and located records of another lawsuit he was a party to. The incident that led to that lawsuit occurred just months before the collision that injured our client.
What should you do to make sure you gather a fair settlement if you find yourself involved in a semi-truck accident? Here’s a quick check-list...
The two most common defenses to liability are that the owner had no knowledge their dog had previously bitten someone and/or demonstrated aggressive tendencies in the past or, possibly, that you were a trespasser on the premises.
Insurers act fast because they want to get to you before lawyers that cost them money get involved. They also know they can get you excited with how fast they can get you cash.
