    Client v. Other Driver

    Car Accidents

    Our Client was hit head on by the Driver of another vehicle. Our client suffered many injuries including episodes of seizures. Our Client originally went to one of the big TV ad firms in July of 2013 the same month the accident occurred. After the big TV ad firm worked on the case for 19 months they obtained an offer of almost $30,000 from the insurer and advised the client to accept. Fortunately Our Client decided to get a second opinion and came to our office. Our office obtained a complete set of medical records and three months after she walked into our office the insurance company offered to settle for more than three times what they had previously offered our client.

    The Big TV AD firm then sought to collect an attorney's lien of $9,865.33 for their work on the case. In Kentucky you can only have an attorney's lien for a reasonable amount. After requesting an invoice of how the firm obtained the $9,865.33 number it was revealed they could only provide evidence of work that added up to $8,544.75. It was discovered that in computing this number they were also billing their time to their former client at $667/hr. Shortly after this we settled their attorney's lien for a fraction of what they originally demanded.

    Client v. Other Driver and Other Driver's Insurer

    Car Accidents

    Our Client's car was being driven by his Wife when she approached a four way stop. As she moved forward a car approached from the right and struck the right rear of her vehicle. The Defendant's insurer contended their insured had the right of way. After obtaining photos of the four way stop in question it was obvious the intersection was too small for Our Client's vehicle to have traveled all the way across the intersection before being hit if the two cars arrived at the same time. The Insurance Company refused to settle and suit was filed. The other driver immediately settled his portion of the case and paid for the damage to the Client's vehicle. The case proceeded against the other Driver's insurance company on the basis that they had acted in bad faith in negotiating the claim. At their deposition the insurance company's adjuster admitted there were ethics rule involved in adjusting automobile claims but they didn't know what they were or where to find them.
