At Chatham Gilder Howell Pittman, we are always working diligently for our clients in need. When a case gets difficult, we double-down our efforts to ensure our clients are treated with respect and that we do all we can to secure them the best settlement or verdict amount possible. That is exactly what we did to secure two car accident case victories that recently closed on a high note for our clients.
Our Recent Car Accident Case Victories
$235,000 For Left-turn Accident Client
Our client was traveling west on Shelby Drive in Memphis, Tennessee. He had a green light and was approaching the intersection with Airways Boulevard when another driver failed to yield and turned left directly in front of him, causing a violent crash. There was virtually no time for our client to brake, swerve, or otherwise try to mitigate the severity of the impact.
The injuries our client suffered in the crash included a severe laceration to his face, a broken collarbone, and numerous other injuries. The at-fault driver had no insurance, which is never a great starting point. However, our attorneys at CGHP were able to find applicable uninsured motorist coverages in our client’s insurance policies that totaled $235,000.00. This aggregate amount was offered, and the case was settled on behalf of our client without the need for stressful litigation.
$30,000 In An Underinsured Motorist Claim
We recently closed another case for a client, in which most of the details need to be left private and confidential. We can share that we secured a $25,000 per person limit from the at-fault driver and another $5,000 from our client’s own underinsured motorist insurance carrier, reaching a settlement total of $30,000. Many law firms will pass right over cases with comparatively low values such as this one, so we are proud to say that we gave this client a chance at a fair recovery, which we confidently secured.
