On December 15, 2017, the Piccuta Law Group settled a car accident case for its client. The case was settled for the maximum available insurance policy limits of $150,000. However, the settlement was well-earned and not without a significant fight.
The insurance company originally offered $13,000 to the client before she hired the Piccuta Law Group. The Piccuta Law Group later filed a lawsuit. During the lawsuit, at a settlement conference, the insurance company offered a maximum of $25,000. The Piccuta Law Group continued to prepare the case for trial. With the trial set for January 8th, 2018, and the Piccuta Law Group ready to try the case, the insurance company finally paid the $150,000 policy limits.
The case arose from a car accident on the freeway at a high rate of speed. The vehicle driven by the firm’s client broke down leaving her stranded on the freeway in a lane of travel. The at fault party, who was not paying attention, failed to change lanes and rear-ended the client’s vehicle at 55-60 miles per hour. Despite the high speed impact, the client’s vehicle did not have significant damage. The client did not seek out medical care until a few days after the collision and there were significant gaps in the client’s treatment. A picture of the damage to the client’s vehicle is below:
