Portner & Shure Law Firm Serving Maryland, Virginia & Washington D.C.


This month, our attorneys were successful against Geico yet again in an auto accident case where liability was denied and no settlement offer was made. In this accident case, our client had a green light and was proceeding straight when the defendant made a left turn directly in front of our client, cutting her off and resulting in the crash. Our client suffered numerous injuries, including to her back, foot, shoulder, and eye. Medical expenses totaled more than $7,000, yet Geico refused to accept liability or make our client an offer to settle the case and avoid litigation. Our attorneys were forced to file suit because of Geico’s refusal to negotiate a settlement. Our client received a verdict of $8,448 plus court costs.
