Motor vehicle passenger suffered neck injuries $57,500.00 settlement

Personal Injury attorney George Rassias settled the claim of a passenger injured in a car accident for $57,000.00. Our client suffered low back injuries with pain radiating down his leg, requiring several months of treatment, and the possibility of permanent nerve damage. Fortunately, the plaintiff had sufficient private health insurance to cover the cost of treatment beyond the extent of coverage he purchased by way of his own motor vehicle coverage (which is required to pay “First Party” benefits – such as medical costs and lost income). It is also fortunate that he chose the FULL TORT OPTION, entitling him to bring a claim for pain and suffering.

This case serves as an important reminder to everyone who owns a car to review your coverage and needs BEFORE an accident occurs. Saving a little bit of money on the policy cost, only to find out you do not have sufficient coverage once an accident occurs is a painful lesson – both physical and financially. If you or someone you know has been injured as a result of the negligent act of someone else – whether it be a car accident, slip & fall or medical Malpractice, you need and experienced and aggressive attorney to protect your rights.
