Recently, Portner & Shure settled an auto accident case from November 2013 for $122,500 for our client who was severely injured in a crash in Carroll County, Maryland. Our client was a passenger in a car that was making a left turn and was hit by a speeding car. The insurance company for the driver of the car which our client was in had an expert who stated that if the defendant was not speeding, the car our client was in would have been able to complete the left turn without an accident.
There was over $36,000 in medical costs for our client, who suffered a displaced fracture in his femur, was taken to Shock Trauma, and still has some residual pain from the accident. The negotiation process in this case lasted well over one year, and was finally able to settle this month. Lora Hatton worked tirelessly negotiating with the insurance carriers to obtain a great settlement for our client.
