$400,000 Award Granted to Family in Elderly PI Accident
Our client, a 96-year-old woman, passed away after a nine-day hospital stay after being hit by a vehicle that ran a stop sign. The tortfeasor had $300,000 in insurance and our client had an underinsured policy worth $100,000. The insurance adjuster argued that based on her age, they would not be able to come near the policy limits. However, our attorneys were able to help award our client’s beneficiary the full amount of our client’s policy, along with the full policy limit from the tortfeasor’s insurance company, totaling $400,000. Although unusual to receive this amount for a 96-year-old individual, our attorneys were able to accomplish this by interviewing the family and painting a very detailed and compelling picture of how active she was and how important she was to the family.
