With nearly 20 years of experience, our firm passionately represents injured clients as they fight for compensation against large insurance companies. In a recent case, our client was involved in a car accident and was pursuing the compensation she deserved. In the end, we were able to help her obtain a large settlement for the accident. Our firm is honored to share another story of success, and we continue to use our experience to fight on behalf of clients in the courtroom.
Here’s what you need to know about the case:
Our client had been driving on a local bridge when she was suddenly rear-ended by another vehicle. She knew that the other driver was to blame. However, the other driver claimed that she had driven into his lane of travel, causing the accident. In essence, he was trying to put the blame on her in order to avoid paying compensation. His insurance company offered a settlement of $35,000 for the incident. However, our client was determined to get the compensation she was rightly owed.
Because the other driver was disputing our client’s claim, we knew evidence was going to be essential. We subpoenaed video surveillance from the NYS Bridge Authority. The footage clearly showed the other driver rear-ending our client’s vehicle. Because of our due diligence and retention of a private investigation firm, we were able to obtain a settlement of $375,000 on our client’s behalf. The case was settled on September 12, 2017.
