Settlement Amount: $150,000
Brett McCandlis Brown & Conner attorney David Brown tackled this case for a 5-year-old boy who suffered a terrible leg fracture after being hit while riding his bicycle by a car driven by a distracted driver. The boy’s injuries resulted in surgery, four days in the hospital, and several months in a wheelchair. His medical bills were more than $80,000.
The crash occurred when our client was riding his bike on a quiet residential street. As the driver approached the boy, the driver was distracted by his own child in the backseat, failed to see the bicyclist, and ran right into him.
David Brown undertook extensive negotiations with the at-fault driver’s insurance company, securing the $50,000 policy limits of the driver’s liability coverage, and also securing the entire $100,000 in coverage from the client’s own Under-insured Motorist coverage, bringing the entire recovery to $150,000.
