Car/Pedestrian Collision - $72,500
When our client walked into Stewart's in South Troy for a cup of coffee, he had no idea that 10 minutes later he'd be sprawled out in the parking lot after a car collided with him. He had a comminuted fracture of his leg, and the insurance company refused to pay! Our client cares for his 90 year old mother, who lives upstairs from him, but now he couldn't climb the stairs to get to her. We tried mediation for him, but the company still wouldn't pay what he was entitled to, so we got his case ready for trial. When the insurance company realized that we'd go to trial to get our client everything he deserved, the company contacted the mediator again and finally offered our client what we demanded from it. Our client has been fully compensated, and now has the money to install a stair lift to get upstairs to see his mother.
The lesson to insurance companies: if you don't want F&K to take you to trial, you'll have to pay us not to!
