Our client was driving in Marietta, GA when another driver failed to yield when turning left, resulting in significant damages to our client’s car and over $14,000 in medical bills.
At first, the insurance company (GEICO) refused to extend an offer at all because there were claiming 50/50 comparative fault, which would cause a plaintiff to be barred from recovery under Georgia law. The insurance company and the at-fault driver claimed that our client failed to take “proper evasive actions.”
Attorney Andrienne McKay promptly sent a statutory property damage demand, filed a lawsuit, then later amended the complaint to include the property damage total loss amount when the insurance company failed to pay the statutory property damage demand.
Then, our team sent a litigation bodily injury demand for the full policy limits contingent upon the insurance company also issuing a check for the total loss property damage amount.
After Andrienne filed suit, GEICO agreed to pay $25,000 plus an additional $4,122.00 for our client’s property damage. Our team settled the case in just over four months.
