  • $820,000.00 Settlement in Rear End Collision

Their vehicle sustained tremendous property damage to the driver’s side and the mirror had even ripped off the door. The at-fault driver fled the scene, but was later charged and arrested for a DUI. The insurance adjuster initially offered to settle the claim for a very minimal amount. The wife underwent neck surgery and the husband had back surgery. After operative reports were submitted to the adjuster, the policy limits of the at-fault party were tendered along with two underinsured motorist policies in this case for a total resolution of $520,000.
