AUTO ACCIDENT PERSONAL INJURY CASE

A 38 year old woman and mother of two young children was rear-ended by another vehicle. Although there was little damage to either vehicle, the mother’s injuries were so severe as to require surgery. The other driver’s insurance company refused to pay for the surgery based on the fact that there was little damage to the vehicles. After filing a law suit, the other driver’s insurance company offered to settle the case for the insurance policy limits. Unfortunately, the policy limits were insufficient to pay for the surgery. Smith Morgan, LLP filed an underinsured motorist claim with the mother’s own insurance company. The mother’s insurance company claimed that her surgery was related to arthritis and other degenerative changes to her spine. The case went to arbitration and had a very successful resulting outcome. The arbitrators awarded the mother enough money to pay the medical bills and a significant amount of money for her pain, suffering, and permanent limitations as a result of the accident.
