CAR ACCIDENT I UNINSURED DRIVER I PERSONAL INJURY SETTLEMENT – $72,500 Settlement, Initial Offer Without Legal Representation $1,500 [Do I need an attorney?] [Why a lawyer?]
October 15, 2019
Following a car accident injured parties often ask themselves:
Most recently our offices settled an uninsured motorist claim for $72,500, prior to our involvement the self-represented client was only offered $1,500 to settle her case. Despite months of medical treatment and numerous negotiations with the insurance carrier she was extended an unjust settlement offer well below her compensatory damages.
In early 2018 our client was rear-ended by an uninsured motorist. Following the collision our client suffered from lumbar pain and cervical strain that triggered chronic headaches. After several months of medical treatment our client attempted to resolve her personal injury claim / uninsured motorist claim without an attorney. Despite her best efforts our self-represented client could not get a settlement offer over $1,500, which was unjust and well below compensatory damages.
After spending months of time, energy and resources battling her insurance carrier she reached out to our offices and asked: “Do I need an Attorney?” and “Why a Lawyer?” After a brief consultation we were retained and an uninsured motorist claim was initiated. Following several months of litigation the UM case settled for $72,500, fairly compensating our client for her injuries.
