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


Recently, Portner & Shure attorney Kevin Ruby settled an auto accident case for $90,000 for his client. Our client was rear ended while driving in Montgomery County, Maryland, resulting in $2000 in property damage to the car. Our client was driving a small sedan and the defendant was driving a large SUV. The total cost of medical bills came to $29,000. In addition, doctors recommended possible future surgery. Insurance companies often do not consider the cost of potential surgeries. However, in this case, the carrier considered the surgery cost when making an offer for $90,000 to settle the case. Mr. Ruby managed to avoid litigation and receive a very favorable award for his client.
