Recently, we obtained a settlement of over $100,000 for person who was injured in a rear end collision auto accident. As his car was being struck, our client put out his arm to brace his pregnant wife, who was sitting next to him.
The force of the impact injured the arm our client used to brace his wife. Our client was diagnosed with a torn shoulder. Our client needed surgery to repair the tear and physical therapy to regain function in the arm.
Prior to settling, we proved to the Court that defendant was 100% liable for the auto accident. It then became a matter of proving our client's damages. The insurance company's original settlement offer was low - little more than $30,000. Through presenting objective medical evidence and extensive negotiation, we made the insurance company quadruple their offer to over $100,000.00. We presented the six figure sum to our client who accepted the settlement.
We here at Tolmage, Peskin, Harris and Falick pride ourselves on getting the best possible settlement for our clients. Insurance companies don't always give you the best offer; even when its proved that their insured was in the wrong. An injured person needs a lawyer on their sied to protect their rigths and they have bee treated fairly. Contact us if you've been injured in an auto accident.
