See why a pedestrian (hit by a car) was able to get 5,000 for his broken leg in just a few months. Learn why the insurance companies paid so quickly.
A man, who was working for US Customs, crashed into a pedestrian in Coconut Grove, Florida. X-rays showed a tibia shaft fracture.
At the hospital, doctors put a metal rods (external fixator) into the claimant’s leg. The fixator was removed within the year.
A IM rod and screws were put in his broken leg (tibia). The rod and screws were left in place.
The driver was driving a rental car. Philadelphia Insurance Company insured it, and paid 0,000 to settle.
We then sued the United States, who was responsible for the negligence of the US Customs’ driver. This was a Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) lawsuit. They paid an additional 5,000.
My client rented a car. He purchased uninsured motorist (UM) insurance on that car. Ace Insurance Company (now Chubb) was the UM insurer. Since the pedestrian was putting a ticket into the rental car when the crash happened, they paid 0,000 to settle.
Basically, the rental car insurance companies paid 0K of the 5K settlement.
As I mentioned above, the total settlement was for 5,000.
