Click here to read an interesting case which explains the rights someone has for emotional distress resulting in physical injury due to injury to another.

The policy limits of the tortfeasor were only $10,000 which is very typical in Florida, because the laws do not require that car owners carry any bodily injury insurance.

Had the client had underinsured motorist insurance, we would have been able to get him more money.

Our client did not carry underinsured motorist insurance, thus we could not make a claim against his insurance company for any amount above $10,000.

$10,000 Settlement (Policy Limits)

Unfortunately, rental car companies are only required, if at all, to have minimal insurance limits.

This is yet another example of a client who would have been able to recover thousands of dollars more had she purchased uninsured/underinsured motorist insurance. The driver that hit the client did not carry bodily injury insurance.

The client did not carry uninsured motorist insurance on his car, therefore we could not make a claim for any amount above $10,000.

$10,000 Settlement

On behalf of a young female driver who injured her wrist when she was struck by another car while driving her vehicle. The at fault driver was insured by Nationwide and the policy limits were $10,000.

Our client did not have underinsured motorist insurance on her GEICO policy.  If she had underinsured motorist insurance, she would have been able to have receive fair value for her personal injury.

The value would have been greater than $10,000.

$7,500 Settlement

For our client, a driver, who was injured.  A hit and run driver hit his car and fled the scene.

Our client’s first medical appointment was about seven days after the crash.  He was diagnosed with a Cervical sprain-strain, Thoracic sprain-strain and Lumbar sprain-strain.

About 1 month later, he had an MRI of the cervical spine.  It showed a C5-C6 paracentral disk protrusion, moderate in size, compressing upon the thecal sac.

He treated for four months from the date of the accident.  At the end of his treatment, the diagnosis was a lumbar strain.

He basically was left with a lower back strain.

I argued to the insurance company that punitive damages would be awarded since the negligent driver fled the accident scene.  An injured victim may be able to get punitive damages if the car that hits him or her leaves the accident scene.

The careless driver was insured with Metlife.
