Clients were passengers in a vehicle involved in a rollover accident, and the defendant driver denied liability.

$200,000.00 :  Bicycle Accident – Jury Trial

Client was riding his bicycle at night on Tampa Street, when a vehicle struck him while it was merging onto the road. Client sustained a broken clavicle. The defendant driver denied liability and claimed that our client was responsible for the accident because he did not have a proper light attached to the front of his bike. The defense hired an accident reconstruction expert to argue that our client was liable for the crash. The jury disagreed and assigned 85% fault on the defendant driver.


$760,000.00:  Pick-Up Truck Accident – Jury Trial

Client was sideswiped by a driver causing his vehicle to roll. He was transported to the hospital with a compression fracture and was recommended surgery. The client was very active and fit prior to the crash and, thus, felt reluctant to surgery. Client was referred for a second opinion, and, ultimately, client recovered with a brace and physical therapy. After our thorough coverage investigation revealed multiple insurance policies applicable to the incident, we were able to negotiate a significant recovery from three of four insurance companies just before trial. The fourth insurance company disputed insurance coverage and refused to respond to the lawsuit filed on behalf of our client. A judgment was obtained and the insurance company filed a Declaratory Action, which resulted in a jury verdict in favor of our client and accessing costs against the insurance company for wrongfully denying the claim.


$375,000.00:  Car Accident Recovery

Clients were involved in an automobile accident with resulting injuries. The insurance company claimed the injuries were soft tissue and pre-existing, and presented a very low offer of less than $15,000. However, the auto accident resulted in surgery for one client and physical therapy for the other client. Ultimately, we recovered $375,000.00 on behalf of our clients. Our office worked to have the clients’ medical bills significantly reduced; thus, maximizing the gross recovery for the clients.


$273,000.00:  Pedestrian Accident – Arbitration Award

Pedestrian was struck while standing outside of his truck in a gated neighborhood and sustained a broken collar bone. The insurance company failed to act in good faith when it failed to timely resolve the claim. We alleged that the failure to act in the best interest of the insurer’s own insureds was tantamount to bad faith. The Court ordered arbitration, and an independent arbitrator heard arguments presented by both sides and ultimately awarded the Plaintiff $273,000.00. The insurance company subsequently agreed to resolve the matter for a negotiated amount that included resolution of any attorney’s fees and costs.

He treated conservatively with physical therapy, and presented to the insurance company an offer to accept the policy limits several times over the case.

$250,000.00:  Car Accident: 2.5 x Insurance Policy Limits Recovery
