$53,750 Settlement for Pedestrian Injured in an Automobile Accident
Sommers Schwartz attorney Joseph Grinnan negotiated a settlement on behalf of a woman who was struck by a car while attempting to cross a busy intersection on foot, causing various orthopedic injuries. The driver’s insurance company was initially reluctant to pay any damages to the victim, asserting that her claim would not satisfy the third-party no-fault insurance threshold of “serious impairment.” After prolonged negotiations, and without having to file a lawsuit, Joe persuaded the company to pay $53,750 in compensation to the plaintiff.
