cars accident

 

 

(Superior Court of Houston County)

Robert 58 years old, was injured when the Defendant failed to yield and pulled her SUV into the path of his pickup causing a T-bone collision.  Robert was treated at the ER with severe knee pain from striking the dash, and pain to his neck, abdomen and back.  In the following weeks his neck pain worsened and he developed numbness and tingling in his hand.   Robert was diagnosed with cervical stenosis, degenerative disc disease and disc bulges.   As a result of the collision he required surgery and incurred over $93,000.00 in medical expenses.

Robert had the same auto insurance for years and always paid his premiums on time.  Unfortunately, when he needed them most, his own automobile insurance company claimed that the condition was a pre-existing condition and refused to compensate him for his damages.

Robert’s attorney, Peter Meyer filed suit in Houston County.  The insurance company spent thousands of dollars and two years fighting his claim.  The insurance defense lawyers refused all settlement offers and walked out of the court ordered mediation with a top settlement offer of $15,000.00.   The senior partners of the insurance defense firm insisted that Houston County was a conservative venue and a jury would never award Robert much more than their offer.

The case was tried before Judge Nunn.  After hearing the evidence and deliberating for just under three hours the jury returned a verdict for our client for $400,000.
