$257,000 Settlement – Car Accident
Attorney: Darren Dawson
The defendant suddenly turned left in front of our client’s oncoming car resulting in a serious collision. Our client, a guest passenger, suffered permanent injuries to her shoulder and clavicle, as well as broken ribs. Working with her primary doctor, our client received a 20% permanent partial disability rating to her upper extremity. The team at Riddle & Brantley, led by attorney Darren Dawson, searched all available insurance coverages and successfully negotiated the policy limit on both the defendant driver’s policy and an excess liability policy. We then negotiated for additional money under another underinsured motorist policy. In total, our client incurred over $90,000 in medical bills and received $257,000 in damages for her injuries.
