Settlement Amount: $500,000
Back & Spinal-Cord Injuries
Car Accidents

Brett McCandlis Brown & Conner attorney David Brown worked closely with his client Virginia to help her after she suffered serious injuries in a t-bone car crash in a collision in an intersection.

Prior to working with David, Virginia had settled the first part of the insurance claim on her own, obtaining the policy limits of $100,000 from the at-fault driver’s insurance coverage. But when Virginia asked her own insurance company to honor the Under-insured Motorist (UIM) provision in her own policy, her insurer offered a mere $5,000, although Virginia’s medical bills totaled $350,000, because the UIM carrier claimed that Virginia’s back problems were not related to the crash.

Virginia knew then that she needed legal help, so she contacted attorney David Brown. After David worked intensively by proving to the UIM insurance carrier, using medical records and the testimony of Virginia’s doctors, that the back injuries were indeed directly related to the car accident, he negotiated a $500,000 policy-limits settlement. Virginia would have likely been unable to negotiate this settlement without the help of an experienced personal injury attorney like David.
