Bennerotte Secures Settlement Of Over $35,000 To Compensate Client Involved In Motor Vehicle Accident

A 52-year-old female was involved in a motor vehicle collision on Aug. 11, 2005. She was a back-seat passenger in a car driven by her daughter. Her daughter was deemed the at-fault party. The involved insurance carriers contended that the impact from the collision, which was termed a “side swipe” collision, was minimal and that there was no way that injuries could have been suffered in the collision. The insurer took the position that it would not pay anything in the case. The involved insurer had both no-fault and liability insurance coverage. Ultimately, after no-fault arbitration, the insurer settled the liability claim for $15,000. Including no-fault benefits, the insurer paid out over $35,000 to compensate our client for her injuries.

Client Obtains $200,000 Settlement From Involved Insurers

A 49-year-old female was involved in a head-on collision on Dec. 16, 2004. The other party was deemed at fault. The client suffered multiple injuries in the collision, the most severe injury being a high heel fracture. The client underwent multiple surgeries on the right heel. She returned to her regular full-time employment and was also able to resume her part-time job. Since she resumed most of her normal activities within a short time after the collision, the involved insurers resisted adequately compensating her. After obtaining reports from the involved treating physicians, serving a lawsuit and undertaking extensive negotiations, the insurers agreed to pay the client the policy limits of $200,000 to resolve her claim.

Bennerotte Secures Settlement For Slip-And-Fall Case

A 49-year-old man sustained a fractured left wrist on Jan. 20, 2002, when he slipped and fell on ice. The fracture required surgical intervention but healed nicely. The involved defendant and its insurance company contested liability and claimed that the fall was caused by our client’s failure to maintain a proper lookout and that they properly salted/sanded the area where the client fell. After obtaining witness statements and weather reports, we were able to achieve a settlement of $85,000 for the injured client.
