Insurance Company Attempts to Settle Car Accident Claim Quickly
A vehicle was traveling the same direction as our client in the lane to her left. That vehicle suddenly attempted to make a right turn right in front of our client, causing a collision and pushing our client's vehicle into a third vehicle. As a result of the double collision, our client received injuries to her neck and back and re-injured her shoulder which she had received treatment for prior to the crash. She ultimately underwent surgery for a tear in her shoulder. Her medical expenses exceeded $55,000.
The other driver's insurance company met with the plaintiff shortly after the crash and attempted to settle the case for $2,400, claiming that the shoulder injury pre-existed the accident.
She then hired Paul Downes who ultimately settled the case for $69,000.
