If a driver’s negligence caused your car accident in Pinecrest, Florida, you may have a case.
First, let’s look at a Pinecrest car accident settlement. Then, I’ll share some fast facts that you need to know about Pinecrest car accident cases.
Driver Gets $39,000 for Pinecrest Car Crash
My client was a 37-year-old man who was driving his pickup truck in Pinecrest, Florida. Another car ran a stop sign.
The front of my client’s truck collided with the side of the car. I claimed that the car crash caused or aggravated my client’s multiple herniated discs.
Prior to the crash, my client was consistently getting medical treatment for the same areas in his back and neck that were hurt in this crash.
He had epidural steroid injections to at least one of the herniations.
Every case is different. However, all things equal, the settlement value of a herniated disc case is higher when there is big property damage to the vehicles involved as opposed to little damage.
The photo below shows that the airbag deployed in my client’s truck.
Tip: Always take pictures of airbags that deployed in a car accident. Take pictures of the other cars’ deployed airbags as well.
All things equal, the injured person has a stronger case if the airbag deploys. This is because airbags usually deploy at crashes that are 17 miles per hour or more.
A deployed airbag shows a heavy impact. A jury is more likely to believe that a car accident caused a herniated disc if the airbag deployed.
I made an uninsured motorist insurance claim
My client had uninsured motorist (UM) liability insurance with Star & Shield Casualty (NARS).
North American Risk Services (NARS) handled the claim for Star & Shield.
I made an underinsured motorist (UIM) insurance claim with NARS.
Wilma Bledsoe was the NARS claims adjuster. They paid $19,000 to settle the case. This is in addition to the $20,000 settlement with GEICO. The total settlement was $39,000.
This settlement was in March 2014.
Are drivers in Pinecrest more likely to have insurance?
33156, the zip code that encompasses all of Pinecrest village, has been consistently ranked as one of the most expensive in the United States.
I would assume that Pinecrest residents are more likely to have BI insurance because they are more likely to have assets that they want to protect.
I have found this to be true in Pinecrest car crash cases that I’ve handled. Thus, if a Pinecrest resident hits you, there may be a higher chance that they have BI insurance.
