Allen, Flatt, Ballidis & Leslie this month settled a claim against an adverse driver for $1.25 Million Dollars. The head-on auto accident occurred in Northern California where the case was eventually litigated. Our client sustained a severe “Pilon” fracture injury to one ankle and a broken leg and wrist. She was not able to work as a teacher for 6 months, and incurred $90,000 in medical bills paid by her health insurance.
The Defendant contended that our client made a good recovery and had modest residual symptoms that did not warrant more than $400,000 in settlement. The Defendant also contended he was not liable, but cut off by another vehicle, a claim that was proven to be false. There was also inadequate insurance coverage.
The firm of Allen, Flatt, Ballidis & Leslie located a second, one-million dollar excess policy, and with underlying coverage, was able to satisfactorily settle the client’s case for $1,250,000. Congratulations to James Ballidis & Suzanne Leslie of the firm for their hard work and successful outcome.
