According to the National Council of Insurance Institute, personal injury and wrongful death claimants who hire experienced lawyers may receive 300% higher settlements. In our experience, this number may actually be substantially more.
Please note that each case is different and past results do not guarantee what will or will not happen with your case. Having said that, here are just a few of the cases that we’ve handled over the past 25 years where we were able to substantially increase the full value of the outcome.
Wrongful Death- Clients were offered an insulting figure of $1 to settle their case. We took the case to trial and obtained a gross jury trial verdict of $1,250,000.
Wrongful Death- Clients were told there was no liability and thus, no settlement offer. We were retained and obtained a $1,000,000 settlement.
Wrongful Death- Clients were told there was no liability and no settlement offers would be made. We were retained and obtained a gross jury trial verdict of $5,500,000.
Auto Accident- Insurance company only offered “policy” of $30,000. We obtained a final settlement of $3,347,000.00.
Motorcycle Accident- Other side’s insurance company refused to make an offer. At pre-trial mediation we were able to settle the case for $1,200,000.
Drowning Wrongful Death- Defense attorneys stated in open court and on the record that their client had no liability. They were wrong and one year later and just before trial we settled the case for $900,000.
Auto Accident- Driver runs red light- Other side’s insurance company said our client ran the red light. We obtained a judgment for our client in the amount of $2,759,852.
Dog Bite- Defendant dog owner said the dog attack was our client’s fault. His insurance company initially refused to accept liability. Case settled shortly before trial for $500,000.
Automobile Wrongful Death- Insurance company for other side originally denied fault or responsibility. It later argued there was only $100,000 available to settle the case. One week before trial we “convinced” the insurance carrier that in fact there was $1,000,000 in coverage and they paid it.
Dozens of More Cases Over the Past 25 Years- Since 1986, we’ve handled thousands of personal injury cases. In several dozens of these cases, we’ve been able to help injured consumers who were offered low settlements of $2,500 to $6,000, eventually receive settlements of $30,000 to $120,000 after we were retained and stepped in to help them with their claim.
Our secret to success is to work as hard as we can to make sure the other side follows the law. It takes a great deal of work and effort but in all of the cases it is well worth it. We enjoy helping people and we would enjoy the opportunity to help you too!
