An Example of a Delaware County Auto Accident Claim Our Firm Has Won
George Rassias, resolved a motor vehicle underinsurance matter for $10,000.00. Originally, the plaintiff, 68, had suffered non-operative lower back soft tissue injuries resulting in radiating pain to her lower extremities when she was involved in a motor vehicle accident. The individual who caused the accident only carried $25,000 in liability coverage. In lieu of going to trial, that defendant tendered $22,500 of the $25,000 available in resolution of that part of the claim. The plaintiff accepted knowing that she would incur costs in excess of $5,000 to produce medical testimony in the case. The plaintiff then sought relief from her own policy for which a premium had been paid for underinsurance coverage – coverage that applies in cases such as these where the individual who causes the accident does not carry adequate liability coverage. That policy agreed to pay an additional $10,000 to compensate her for her injuries. Legal Advice: At any time but especially upon renewal of your automobile insurance policies, please take the time to review your coverage for, among other things: (1) adequate liability coverage if you cause an accident; (2) explore and understand the benefits of “full tort” coverage (Pa residents only) to ensure you can be compensated in the event YOU are injured in an accident; and (3) adequate uninsured and underinsured coverage because many people carry the minimum coverage of $15,000 and if you are hurt in an automobile accident, you want yourself and your passengers adequate protected and prepared for the financial consequences of injuries.
