Sometimes when auto crashes happen, it may at least initially appear that there is not enough liability insurance to cover the extent of injuries sustained in the crash. At Preuss | Foster Law, we do not stop at first appearances. We dig into the facts and all possible responsible insurance carriers. We want to see our clients made whole for their losses. And we handle the medical, insurance and legal aspects of the claim so our clients can focus on what matters most – their recovery.
A Devastating Accident
Recently, we were honored to represent a lady who suffered bad injuries to her ankles and feet in an unfortunate and completely unexpected auto accident. The driver primarily responsible for the crash only had $50,000 in liability auto insurance. This was not enough to cover the injuries sustained by our client. That’s when we continued to dig. We began requesting information from the insurance companies. We interviewed the investigating police officers and all witnesses to the crash and the events leading up to the crash.
An Important Breakthrough
At the end of our investigation, we learned that there was a different owner of the vehicle that hit our client. The car owner’s insurance policy also covered this accident. We also learned that there was another driver who contributed to the accident. After negotiating with that driver’s insurance company and attorneys for the insurance company, that company also agreed to pay its policy limits, resulting in a settlement of $215,000.
During the course of our investigation we were also able to provide payment for our client’s medical treatment and lost wages through our client’s insurance company. This helped ease the financial stresses on her and her family during this difficult time in their lives.
A Life Restored
We know recovery from an accident like this is never easy, but we also know that our client has such a positive, upbeat attitude that nothing is ever going to hold her back. We were honored to represent her and wish her and her family all the best in the future.
