Result

When our client was side-swiped by an inattentive driver, Allstate Insurance Company refused to pay a fair amount for its insured’s negligent acts.  We were able to win a verdict for our client in the amount of $50,000.  This was almost double what Allstate was willing to pay.

Facts

The Defendant pulled out of Grasso Plaza onto Gravois Road in St. Louis, Missouri. The Defendant failed to yield and ran into our client’s vehicle, causing it to spin 180 degrees.

The defendant did not dispute liability, so the key argument centered around the amount of damages (injuries sustained by our client). Our client sustained soft tissue injuries to his back and right leg, although he did not need emergency medical attention.

The defense counsel argued that the injuries were due to arthritis, but our experts, who were also the treating physicians, were able to refute the arguments made by the defense.

The jury ended up agreeing with our expert and awarded our client $50,000 for his injuries, far surpassing the offers made by Allstate Insurance.
