$120,000 Recovered for Car Accident Victim with Uninsured Motorist Coverage

$120,000 Recovered for Car Accident Victim with Uninsured Motorist Coverage

Our client was driving down the road with her young granddaughter, when another car suddenly drove into her lane and hit her vehicle. The collision was so severe, it caused our client’s car to flip over. She was taken immediately to urgent care and then transferred to the hospital. After extensive testing, including X-rays and CT scans, doctors determined our client had soft tissue injuries to her ankle, back, and neck. Tests also showed pulmonary contusions in her lungs. Thankfully, there were no broken bones.

In the weeks following the collision, our client was still experiencing some throat and back pain so she went to the hospital for follow-up. The hospital gave her a form of mouthwash to help with her throat, and then sent her to an orthopedist for further evaluation. Our client started physical therapy and continued until she had fully recovered.

After her treatment concluded, our client had $57,000 in medical bills. Securing the full liability limits of $25,000 was straightforward, and settled within a few months of the accident. Attorney Andrienne McKay then looked for additional coverage from uninsured motorist (UM) policies

We discovered our client was driving a vehicle that had UM insurance on it and also had a personal UM policy for a separate vehicle. The challenge began when our team sent a settlement demand to the personal UM insurance company asking for the full policy limits of $50,000. They counter-offered with $22,500, despite this being a bad wreck and despite our client having more than double that amount in medical bills.

Because of aggressive negotiations and a thorough investigation, Attorney Andrienne McKay and The Champion Firm team successfully secured an additional $50,000 from the personal UM policy $45,000 from the UM policy on the vehicle involved in the car wreck. This resulted in a total settlement of $120,000 for our client.
