Delayed Injury Symptoms Result in $75,000 Settlement

Delayed Injury Symptoms Result in $75,000 Settlement

Posted By The Dunnion Law Firm || 24-Sep-2014

Dunnion’s client was in a simple rear end accident with no immediate need for medical treatment. She was not surprised when her back and neck ached, but she soon started to notice trembling of her head and hands. Was this related to the impact? The defendant’s insurance company did not want to risk losing that argument and quickly tendered its small $15,000 limits in satisfaction of the claim against its driver. But client also had her own underinsured motorist coverage and that is where the problems resolving her claim began. In a battle that lasted close to three years, Dunnion fought for her. Ultimately, when the carrier’s doctor unequivocally diagnosed her with “essential tremor” a common condition that has no known cause, both parties had to compromise and the case was settled for $75,000 (out of the policy limits of $100,000).
