Arbitration Verdict plus $120,000 No-fault Award

$213,808

Litigation Type - Auto Accidents

Client Injury - Knee and Hip Injury

Cory Whalen was contacted by a former client of his when he slipped on the running board of his truck and fell, injuring his knee and hip.  Unfortunately, not three months after signing the retainer agreement, a vehicle spun out in front of this same client, causing a severe collision and causing additional neck injuries to the man.  Multiple accidents unfailingly result in complications for the client as well as the attorney.  Whalen, however, was up to the challenge.

Whalen fought for three years for this man as he underwent multiple surgeries and recovery periods.  After a successful pursuit of no-fault benefits, the man’s insurance company provided $120,000 to Whalen and his client.  Pursuit of the liability claim for the second incident found Whalen and his client before an Arbitrator after the at-fault driver’s insurance company refused to move from their offer of $20,000.  Whalen persisted and the Arbitrator awarded $93,808 to Whalen and his client.
