After Tough Negotiations, Large Settlement for Injured Pedestrain
Our client was walking through a parking lot on his way to a bus stop when a motorist backed up without looking and hit him. Our client was knocked to the ground and his hip and elbow were broken. Our client sought timely medical help and treatment for his accident-related injuries, but his medical expenses exceeded the at-fault driver’s insurance policy limits.
After he had hired the dedicated and tough auto accident injury attorneys at Dwyer Williams Cherkoss PC, we contacted the at-fault driver’s insurance company and were able to get it to disclose its insured’s policy limit. Once we knew this figure, we let our client’s health insurance know that there would not likely be enough money to go around.
After several rounds of negotiation, we were able to reach an agreement with our client’s health insurance company wherein it agreed to reduce its lien by almost half to total outstanding amount. From there, we were able to get all of our client’s accident-related medical expenses paid and to get him a generous pain and suffering settlement. Our client was thrilled with his decision to work with our experienced and tough personal injury attorneys.
