The Champion Firm Secures $250,000 Settlement in Uninsured Motorist Case

In June 2020, The Champion Firm was hired to represent a woman who suffered medical injuries after being the victim of a hit-and-run car accident.

Our client was traveling on Lumpkin Road in Augusta, Georgia when she was violently struck by an unknown John Doe driver. The at-fault driver attempted to make a left turn but crashed into the front passenger side of our client’s car instead. After the impact, that driver fled the scene, leaving our client to deal with the aftermath of her injuries and a disabled vehicle.

Our client called 911 to report the accident. The county sheriff arrived on the scene. A brief investigation of the accident scene revealed that the at-fault driver left behind the grill of their Dodge sedan. The sheriff concluded that the driver failed to yield and caused the accident.

Meanwhile, our client’s car was not running and needed towing. Later, the insurance company declared it a total loss.

But that wasn’t all of the damage. After the accident, our client sought medical treatment, and an MRI revealed subacute mild compression fractures at L3, L4, and L5 which required multiple surgeries to correct. Her medical bills cost her $84,490.

The Champion Firm’s Darl Champion and Bill Daniel were aggressive from the beginning, receiving an initial offer of $105,000. However, this did not deter The Champion Firm. Darl and Bill continued to fight until they were able to secure the full uninsured motorist policy limits of $250,000 and ensure that our client received fair compensation for her significant injuries.
