After Mrs. Airey submitted his claim to Farmers Insurance, Mr. Rahi stepped in and filed suit in the Circuit Court of York County Virginia. Mr. Rahi was able to obtain $50,000 from Farmers, and found an additional $25,000 through UM coverage with Meadowbrook Claims.

Jun 27, 2017

Automobile accident in Loudoun County, Virginia where our client was hit head-on by a drunk driver who was coming down Route 28 in the wrong direction. The defendant had a 0.17 blood alcohol concentration, therefore, punitive damages were possible. Our client’s vehicle had extensive damage and was deemed a total loss. Client suffered broken ribs, laceration on his right hand requiring stitches, and a dislocated shoulder. Suit was filed because the liability carrier failed to conclude their coverage investigation in a timely manner. Well after suit was filed, Nationwide made a $150,000 offer. After arguing with the liability adjuster, a new offer of $250,000 was extended and the case was settled.
