– CGMB Secures Personal Injury Settlement for Client Fifty-five Times Larger than the Insurance Company’s Initial Offer –
As with many of his personal injury cases, CGMB partner David Barry recently secured a significant settlement in a Nassau County motor vehicle accident case. In typical fashion, the insurance company in this case determined their insured was not at fault and offered to settle the matter at only a fraction of what the case was really worth.
This personal injury case centered on a Nassau County motor vehicle accident occurring at a busy intersection on Christmas Eve. David’s client, whose injuries included a broken hand that required surgery, was initially told by the insurance company they were not assuming responsibility for the accident, and therefore their offer of compensation was below what David would accept to settle the case. Unwilling to accept the insurance company’s position, David took the case to Nassau Supreme Court and began an aggressive campaign to gather favorable evidence for his client, including the use of a private investigator, background checks, eyewitness statements and depositions, and expert reports. After many months of depositions, court appearances, negotiations and mediation, David’s client was ultimately awarded fifty-five times what the insurance company originally offered.
The results of this particular personal injury settlement demonstrate the importance of having an experienced personal injury attorney in your corner to fight to get you the compensation you deserve. In this case, increasing an insurance company’s determination by fifty-five times its original offer is the direct result of David and his team at CGMB using both traditional and non-traditional methods to make effective arguments for a client when it comes to a personal injury case. Refusing to simply accept an insurance company’s determination, David aggressively pursued other channels to fight to get his client the personal injury settlement he deserved. By strategically uncovering many additional and important pieces of evidence, David not only secured just compensation for his injured client, but truly demonstrated how important it is to have a trusted and experienced lawyer on your side when you are injured due to the negligence, carelessness and/or recklessness of another.
This case, and the increasing of a settlement offer by fifty-five times its starting point, is just one recent example of how vital it is to have an experienced personal injury attorney helping you navigate the complex area of personal injury law. Every day, the personal injury attorneys at Collins Gann McCloskey & Barry go further to fight to get clients the compensation they deserve and need to cover medical bills, lost wages and past and future pain and suffering.
