Updated Legal Awards and Settlements-Case Summaries

Client #16665. A 22 year old Schuylkill Haven, Schuylkill County resident was driving his mother’s van on a back road near Schuylkill Haven when a light colored Mustang coming in the opposite direction went out of control and struck the van head-on. Both vehicles were insured by the same insurance company. Our young client suffered very serious injuries including a left leg dislocation, a hip fracture, broken fingers and broken ribs. He went on to require a total hip replacement. A thorough investigation identified multiple eyewitnesses from whom statements were obtained. Extensive scene and vehicle photographs were utilized. All injuries were fully documented and we were able to obtain a $325,000.00 settlement for our client for all available insurance coverage.

Client #16294. A 36 year old, mother of two, was in the course of her employment driving a van for a transportation company on Route 222 in Maidencreek Township, Berks County, Pennsylvania. As she was proceeding toward Reading, Pennsylvania, she was confronted with a Ford Escort that came flying over the median striking her van. The driver claimed that he was cut off by another vehicle that had entered from a ramp. However, our detailed investigation revealed that the Ford Escort had three bald tires and was traveling at an excessive rate of speed. Numerous eyewitness statements were obtained. Our client underwent open reduction and internal fixation of her ankle fractures. She went on to develop severe post-traumatic arthritis requiring an ankle fusion. We were able to obtain the policy limits from numerous motor vehicle insurance policies that resulted in settlement in excess of $405,000.00.

Client #17148. A $1,100,000.00 settlement was obtained on behalf of a severely injured 73 year old retired home economics teacher. Our client suffered severe injury on Route 73 between Blandon and Oley, Pennsylvania when a dump truck coming in the opposite direction swerved into the oncoming lane of traffic and overturned and crushed our client’s car. Although the truck driver claimed that his actions were necessitated by the sudden unexpected stopping of a car in front of him, we were able to conduct an extensive investigation which completely undermined his defense. Our client suffered massive injuries including numerous fractures and underwent surgeries. She required both inpatient and rehabilitation care as well as home care. There were extensive medical bills paid by her health insurance which demanded that the payments be repaid out of the settlement. That demand was successfully contested and a lien by Medicare was dramatically reduced.

Client #17736. A $200,000.00 settlement was obtained by the estate of a 77 year old pedestrian who was crossing mid-block wearing dark clothes as he attempted to cross to go into a restaurant in the evening hours. The driver who ran into him had $100,000.00 in liability insurance and our client had $100,000.00 in underinsured motorist coverage. We were able to obtain the full amount of all coverages despite arguments presented that our client was contributorily negligent. We were able to obtain statements from witnesses establishing that the driver was speeding at the time his car ran into our client and he did not see our elderly client despite bright overhead lighting.

Client #16947. A second year student at Lincoln University was a passenger in a car driven by another student. They had stopped at a store near the school to buy some folders. There was a two-car collision and there was a dispute as to who was at fault. One driver claimed that he was rear-ended and the other driver claimed that the other vehicle pulled out in front of him from a stop sign. Despite these conflicts we were able to obtain the full amount of available insurance coverage for our client who suffered a fractured right leg. Total settlement was in the amount of $200,000.00.
