Severe spinal injuries from automobile accident

Our client was severely injured in a collision with an 18 wheeler. He suffered five (5) fractured vertebrae in his neck after the 18-wheeler violently rear-ended the vehicle in which our client was a back seat passenger. Despite sufficient proof of loss, and an offer to settle for the 1 million dollar liability limits, the insurance company negligently and in bad faith refused to accept the offer and pay its 1 million dollar liability limits to our client. Ultimately, settlement was obtained for our client in the amount of $2.0 Million Dollars. One Million additional dollars was obtained as a result of the insurance company’s bad faith for not settling for the 1 million dollar offer when it could have to protect the defendants from an excess judgment
Our client also received the Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist (UM) limits of $100,000.00 from its own insurance company, plus an additional $12,508.93 in Judicial Legal Interest.
