Our client sustained serious, long-term injuries in 2015 when another motorist crashed into her car in Orange County, Florida.
As a result of the crash, she suffered herniations in her neck and back, disfigurement, disability, mental anguish, and other debilitating and costly injuries. Additionally, our client’s pre-existing condition was exacerbated by the car crash. Her car was damaged, as well.
Turning a $25K Pre-Trial Offer Into a $1.1M Jury Award
Since the crash, our client has incurred over $42,000 in medical bills due to necessary medical treatments, such as epidural injections into her neck and back. She also lost earnings as a result of the crash, and will potentially never be able to return to work, as her injuries may be permanent in nature.
This $1.1M jury award comes after a shocking, low ball initial offer on behalf of the victim’s insurance company of just $25,000, a sum that would not come close to fairly compensating our client for all of the medical costs, pain and suffering, and loss of earnings she suffered as a result of the crash.
That’s why we’re so proud that attorneys McClain and Berry were able secure a just verdict for our client through their winning argument, and help her on her path to recovery.
When Insurance Companies Low-Ball, Don’t Accept It
Sadly, our client’s story is not an uncommon one. Too often, insurance companies will offer unfair, inadequate compensation to seriously harmed individuals who have faithfully paid their premiums year after year. They trusted the insurance company to help them in their time of need, and they’re let down.
In situations like these, an attorney can fight by your side to ensure you’re not being cheated out of what you’re owed for your injuries. Car accident attorneys are experienced in handling these types of cases and know the common tactics insurance companies use to cut costs at your expense, such as minimizing or miscategorizing your injuries.
