Passenger in Hydroplaning Car Accident receives $275,000 settlement with stackable policy
Our client was riding in a friends car in Laurens County, GA. The driver was going a high rate of speed, hydroplaned and hit a tree resulting in a horrific car accident. Witnesses to crash thought our client was dead. She had significant injuries including pelvic fractures and a bladder perforation tear with medical bills exceeding $70,000. While our client only got 25K from the liability insurer’s policy, The Champion Firm battled UM to get all available under insured policies through our client’s father’s motorcycle insurance policy. The Champion Firm did a full analysis to show why our client needed the full limits and due to our understanding of the stackable policy laws, we were able to get her a settlement of $275,000.
