From Our Case Files
$475,000 settlement for failure to detect liver cancer - The client had liver imaging tests, and his general practitioner told him that the spots were benign. In fact, further tests indicated that the client had cancer which could have been detected and treated earlier. The initial imaging was misread. The cancer was detected too late causing the client’s death.
$450,000 settlement from ankle and foot fractures - The client was a pedestrian, and she sustained fractures to her ankle and foot which required surgery (open reduction with internal fixation). Defendant conceded that he missed seeing the client cross the street.
$250,000 settlement for summer camp accident - The client, a 15-year-old girl, sustained a fractured skull when she fell from a golf cart. Fortunately, the child did not require surgery, and she was able to catch-up with her school studies. The young lady, now 18, graduated high school with honors and is studying in Israel.
The child and her bunkmates were given a ride on a golf cart around the camp’s running track. The cart was overloaded with youngsters, and the client stood in the back basket which was intended for golf clubs. She fell from the cart on a turn. The counselor should not have allowed the golf cart to be packed with campers, and she should not have permitted the client to stand in the basket.
$200,000 settlement for motor vehicle accident - Our client, a pedestrian, who was struck by a yellow cab. She sustained a leg fracture with surgery and insertion of hardware (open reduction with internal fixation).
The case is interesting because it demonstrates the importance of maintaining your own insurance with the best coverages that you can afford. In this instance, the yellow cab had insurance of $100,000. The cab’s insurer offered the $100,000. Ordinarily this would have been the end of the story. However, the client had her own auto insurance, and she had underinsurance of $200,000. This protected her if her injuries had a value in excess of defendant’s coverage. In this case, the injuries were worth more than the $100,000 from the yellow cab. We settled with the yellow cab, and then we proceeded with the client’s own insurance carrier, Geico. The $100,000 that the client received from the yellow cab was an offset from her $200,000 underinsurance coverage. Therefore, her own insurer paid $100,000, and the client’s total settlement was $200,000 ($100,000 from the yellow cab and $100,000 from her own insurer). If the client did not have this superior insurance, her recovery would have been limited to $100,000 from the yellow cab.
