Motor Vehicle Negligence Verdicts & Settlements

MOTOR VEHICLE NEGLIGENCE

Minor Child v. Negligent Driver

A nine-year-old was struck by a vehicle while riding his bicycle, a present he received for his birthday the day before the collision. A monetary settlement was reached prior to filing suit. In addition, improvements to the road were made to prevent future incidents.

Driver v. Automobile Insurance Company

Settlement was obtained for our client who was struck by a vehicle while riding a motor scooter; he later died as a result of his injuries.

Minor Child v. School Board

While attempting to board his school bus, our middle school client was run over by another school bus resulting in a fractured pelvis. A settlement was reached days before trial.

Driver v. Tractor Trailer and Automobile Transport Company

Confidential settlement for our client who suffered a stroke after being t-boned by a tractor trailer transporting vehicles. The tractor trailer driver made an illegal u-turn after taking the wrong interstate exit when he collided with our client’s van.

Driver v. Auto Insurance

While pumping gas, Mrs. Foran’s client was run over by his own car when a pick-up truck ran into his car. Settlement was reached prior to filing suit.

Client v. Trucking Company

Confidential settlement for a client who lost his leg as a result of a collision with a semi-tractor trailer on a rural road at night. The truck ran into the car which was traveling slowly, and should have been avoided. Semi-tractor trailer accidents are particularly bad because they can cause catastrophic injuries. Even though it was a glancing blow to the car, because it was a tractor-trailer, our client lost his leg. Attorney Lisa Foran provided a lifetime of benefits for her client.

Infant v. Pizza Company

At the conclusion of trial, Tallahassee personal injury attorney Mr. Hinkle obtained a $22,500,000 judgment on behalf of his client, a brain injured infant. The defendant’s employee ran a red light while returning from a pizza delivery.

Driver v. at Fault Driver and UM Insurer

Ankle injury settled for a total of $513,000.

Individual v. Insurance Company

Rear-end collision by Deputy Sherriff, resulting in neck fusion surgery. Settlement of $230,000.

Multiple Families v. Trucking Company

Wrongful death claims for migrant workers killed in truck versus van collision. Settlements total $1,200,000.

Individual v. Insurance Company

Settlement of $525,000 in a case involving a $50,000 policy when the insurance carrier failed to settle when it could and should have done so.

Individual v. Insurance Company

Settlement of $5,500,000 with an insurance company who had issued a $50,000 policy. Insurance company failed to settle the case when it could and should have done so resulting in excess award against their insured.

Driver v. Trucking Company

This was a classic “night time underride case” in which our client crashed into the trailer of a semi-truck, which had pulled out and turned left. The headlights of the truck were fully in the opposite lane, but the bed of the truck remained across the highway hidden by the bright lights on the cab. Our client sustained fractured vertebrae and various other injuries resulting in structured settlement that provided him working capital to begin his life anew with a lifetime annuity.

Estate v. Insurance Company

A teenage driver ran a stop sign resulting in the tragic death of young elementary school student on her way to school. The insurance company failed to timely respond to a demand for policy limits and the case proceeded to litigation. Although the insurance company contended that it was not in bad faith because the demand letter was routed to a property adjustor and there was insufficient time to respond, a substantial but confidential settlement many times policy limits was achieved prior to trial.

Palintiff v. Insurance Company

The defendant ran a red light striking our client who suffered a fractured leg and diffuse axonal injury with mild cognitive deficits. After a hard fought trial, the jury returned a verdict of $724,502.

Estate v. Trucking Company

Policy limits of $750,000 settlement in semi-tractor-trailer accident resulting in wrongful death. The flatbed trailer failed to have proper reflective tape down the side to alert motorists that it was crossing the road in the dark. As a result of this and other cases eventually the federal government required such tape and it became standard practice, thus saving lives and preventing injury.

Driver v. Drunk Driver and Automobile Insurance Company

A teenage drunk driver crossed the centerline and struck our client’s vehicle head-on, causing neurological deficits. A vigorous work-up and presentation of the case resulted in a settlement for $1,500,000.

Driver v. Rental Car Agency

An automobile accident in which our client was hit broadside by a speeding car. Injuries from the car accident included a severe closed head injury and surgery around the eye socket. The jury awarded the $1,337,000.

Estate v. School Board

Settlement of $1,000,000 awarded on behalf of the family of a driver who was killed by a school bus driver that ran a stop sign.
