  • Policy limits settlement for $900,000.00
    Policy limits settlement for $900,000.00 on behalf of two minor children injured in a hit and run accident with a tractor trailer that cut off their vehicle and fled the accident scene. The Virginia State Police trooper who investigated the crash attributed the accident to a tire blowout of the SUV in which they were riding as passengers. A tire expert hired on behalf of the claimants conclusively ruled out a tire blowout and through diligent investigation several key eyewitnesses were located who provided favorable testimony establishing that the actions the tractor trailer driver in changing lanes caused the SUV to lose control. After extensive litigation and negotiations, a settlement was reached for the insurance policy limits of $900,000.00. In approving the terms of the settlement, the presiding trial judge noted that “he had never seen Allstate voluntarily pay their entire policy.”

  • $670,000 WRONGFUL DEATH
    Auto exhaust can be deadly. Our client was on a friendly overnight visit to his cousin’s house in Silver Spring, Maryland. While he was sleeping, someone accidentally left a car running in the garage. The carbon monoxide from the car exhaust infiltrated the house and, tragically, killed everyone in the house. The case was tricky because all the witnesses had died in the house. Nevertheless, we performed so well during the three-day trial that the judge granted a directed verdict and the jury awarded our client’s estate the amount listed above.
