Below are some of my settlements for clients who were injured in an accident caused by a drunk driver.
$95,000 Settlement on behalf of a 44 year old man who was crashed into by a drunk female driver insured by GEICO. According to the police report, the at-fault driver was driving the wrong way, and attempted to make a u- turn in the roadway and struck our client’s vehicle. The other driver was found to be at fault for violation of driving the wrong way. GEICO’s starting offer to me was $17,500.
Investigation also revealed that the guilty driver had been drinking. DUI investigation was conducted. The driver who caused the accident was arrested for violation of driving under the influence. The MRI films showed 2 bulging discs and 2 herniated discs.
$30,000 Settlement for a driver who was involved in a DUI car accident in Miami, Florida. Her mother’s uninsured/underinsured motorist company is GEICO. We are also making a personal injury claim against the driver’s insurance that caused the accident. The car the friend was driving was insured by Great American Insurance Company.
$14,100 Settlemen for a male passenger who was rear ended by a Drunk Driver insured by United Automobile Insurance Company (UAIC). The Driver was found guilty of DUI by a criminal court. The passenger suffered a herniated disc, and received therapy from a chiropractor for months after the accident. United Automobile Insurance Company settled for their insured’s policy limits of $10,000.00. We filed a claim against the passenger’s underinsured motorist company for State Farm Insurance, and received $4,100.00. We also represent the driver, and we have a claim pending against both United Automobile Insurance Company and State Farm, who is the uninsured motorist insurance company.
$17,500 Settlement for the husband of the woman who lost her fetus as a result of being involved in a car crash with drunk driver. Her OB doctor did not relate the death of the fetus to the auto accident. Florida law allows you to make a claim for emotional damages of an expectant mother and father resulting from a stillbirth caused by the negligence of another.
