$600,000 for Passenger in DUI Car Crash
Our client was in a car crash caused by a DUI driver and rushed to the hospital with critical injuries. After six months of surgeries and treatment, our client continued to struggle while walking and suffered from limited mobility and coordination. His medical bills were over $400,000.
The first step after The Champion Firm was hired was to start the demand process for the liability claim. There was only $250,000 in liability coverage, which was quickly recovered due to the clear negligence of the driver of the vehicle. In addition, our team was able to get the $100,000 policy limits for property damage because our client’s cell phone and clothing were damaged in the wreck. Moving quickly, our team’s next step was to pursue our client’s full UM (underinsured motorist) policy, which was $250,000. During negotiations, The Champion Firm refused to lower the demand for the policy limits, and the insurance company agreed to pay the full UM Limits rather than face a lawsuit.
Our team was able to recover a total settlement of $600,000 less than eight months after our client’s accident. This case demonstrates the importance of quickly choosing the right personal injury law firm after a wreck. Because our clients hired The Champion Firm shortly after the wreck and we pursued their case aggressively without delay, we were able to get them the full policy limits for all three insurance policies.
