Bill Berenson Injury Law announces that it has successfully obtained the total available insurance limits of $305,000.00 for our client.
He was driving in Decatur last year when a van without its lights on crashed into his Mercedes. Liability was disputed, as the van driver said that his lights were on and that our client failed to yield the right of way at the intersection.
The man had to be rushed by ambulance to a hospital where he spent several days recovering from his serious injuries, including fractures.
In June our client underwent arthroscopic surgery to his right shoulder.
Our client’s health insurance carrier and our law firm reduced his medical bills significantly, so under the “paid versus incurred” formula set out in the Texas Civil Practices & Remedies Code, this cut into the economic value of his case. We then reduced his medical bills by over $30,000.00.
The case had other problems, including the police officer stating that our client had not been wearing his seat belt. In the recent case of Nabors v. Romero, the Texas Supreme Court ruled in 2015 that if the plaintiff’s failure to restrain himself caused or contributed to his injuries, he cannot recover damages.
Also our client had returned to work and his company paid his wages, negating his claim in this category.
Here’s a picture of us in his home town of Decatur after I met him and his wife to announce the good news. They received almost $170,000.00 after medical and legal bills and were very happy.
Our client gave our firm a 5 star Google review and kindly wrote:
Bill and his staff were very, very good at crossing t’s and dotting the i’s while keeping me informed about how my case was proceeding. Great settlement!
Thank You Bill and all those at the Berenson Law firm that I had the pleasure of dealing with!
It was my sincere honor to represent this fine gentleman. I wish him and his wife all the best.
