Our 40-year-old client was sitting at an intersection obeying the traffic signal when a negligent driver violently rear-ended his vehicle. As a result of the accident, our client suffered a serious rotator cuff tear that required extensive shoulder surgery. He went through many months of physical therapy and follow-up doctor appointments. When he was finally released, he still hadn’t made a full recovery and continues to suffer from a significant injury.
Randall Sevenish Pursued All Avenues to Obtain a Settlement for Our Client
Randall Sevenish understood the importance of pursuing compensation from all liable parties in order to obtain a settlement that compensated our client for his serious injuries. In this case, it wasn’t liability in dispute, but the severity of our client’s injuries. Mr. Sevenish conducted a thorough investigation, which included obtaining our client’s medical records and a statement from his attending physician regarding his injuries, treatment, and prognosis.
Using this evidence, Mr. Sevenish convinced the negligent driver’s insurance company to settle for the full policy limit. However, he knew this wouldn’t fully cover our client’s losses.
Fortunately, our client carried underinsured motorist coverage to pay for injuries when a negligent driver doesn’t have sufficient insurance coverage. Mr. Sevenish negotiated a settlement with our client’s insurance company under this coverage and successfully obtained a six-figure settlement from both insurance policies for our client.
While the settlements won’t take away our client’s permanent injuries, they enabled him to pay some of his medical bills and move forward with his life.
