Read-End Accident Settlement- 350000.0000

Nov 5, 2013

Rear-end accident where our client was hit in her work vehicle while stopped at a red light in Loudoun County, Virginia. Client suffered injuries to her neck, back, and right shoulder, with the neck and shoulder requiring surgery. Client was not able to work after the accident due to a permanent shoulder injury. Suit was filed because our client’s medical expenses and lost wages exceeded the Defendant’s insurance policy and no offer of settlement was made. Suit was filed in Loudoun County Circuit Court. No offer was made until after depositions were completed. The case was mediated before a retired Supreme Court of Virginia Judge and settled just weeks before trial. A workers’ compensation lien of almost $500,000.00 was negotiated and reduced at the same time as counsel for the Plaintiff worked with both defense attorneys to resolve the claim.

Fairfax County Motorcycle Accident- 400000.0000

Motorcycle accident where our client was the motorcyclist and the Defendant made an illegal left turn directly in front of him. Client suffered broken bones in his foot and required surgery. Suit was filed because treatment was going to extend past the statute of limitations. Suit was filed in Fairfax County Circuit Court. After suit was filed and depositions were taken, liability was accepted by the primary insurer and their coverage extended. At the same time, the underinsured motorist coverage made no additional settlement offers. After a review of independent medical examinations and proposed testimony of plaintiff’s experts, the defense attorney resumed negotiations just weeks before trial. At that point, a settlement agreement was reached.
