Jennifer S. v. Uninsured Motorist Insurer

Knee arthroscopy, motor vehicle accident, settlement policy limits

Jennifer S., a 19-year-old college student, was rear ended by a driver near the university that she attended in Davie, Florida. Her knee hit the dashboard and she had to undergo arthroscopic surgery for a torn meniscus twice as a result of the accident. The other driver carried minimal automobile insurance that would not compensate Jennifer for her serious personal injuries. Jennifer contacted Sam Coffey to see if he could help.  She knew that she needed a car accident lawyer for her Ft. Lauderdale car accident.

Initially, Sam as the automobile ensure to pay the insurance policy limits due to the extensive nature of Jennifer’s injuries and medical bills in excess of $70,000.00. The insurer refused to honor its contractual commitment to Jennifer. Sam Coffey filed a Civil Remedy Notice and a lawsuit for underinsured motorist benefits against the insurer.

The matter proceeded through the litigation process and the insurer eventually offered to pay the insurance policy limits to avoid a bad faith judgment for more than the full value of the policy.  Jennifer was happy that she hired the right car accident lawyer for her ft. lauderdale car accident.
