Recent Case Result March 2017Author: Portner & Shure
This month, Portner & Shure settled an accident case for one of its clients for $500,000.00. Our client was a passenger in the vehicle that caused the accident, which occurred in July 2015 in Virginia. The Uber driver was found to be at fault because he drove through a red light. Our client suffered significant injuries, including a fractured ankle, broken ribs, and a fractured right elbow and right hand. Our client required surgery to repair his elbow and hand. Even after the surgery, our client still experiences limitations in the use of his right hand. After lengthy settlement negotiations, Mr. Portner and the paralegal assigned to the case, Rebecca Dean, were able to obtain a settlement for $500,000.00.
