$350,000 Settlement – Tractor-Trailer Accident
Attorney: Adam Smith
We were retained by a woman who was seriously injured in a collision with a tractor-trailer. She suffered a spinal fracture and a concussion and incurred about $40,000 in medical bills which were paid by her health insurance. She had another law firm file suit for her and after an unsuccessful process, they referred her to us. Her case was on a trial docket. We hired experts to help us equate damages. We conducted depositions, including with her doctors. We were then able to settle the case prior to trial for $350,000 which was almost twice the previous offer. We believe we were able to leverage such a substantial increase in the insurance company’s offer because we demonstrated that we were willing to take the case to trial.
