$110,000 settlement for left rotator cuff tear that required surgery

Our client suffered a left rotator cuff tear requiring surgery after being hit by a driver who ran a red light and struck her head-on. She was a very active individual who coached volleyball and worked as a personal trainer. But after the accident, her injuries made these activities very difficult. The defendant’s insurance company offered its policy limits of $50,000.00, but the client’s insurance company gave a low offer to settle her underinsured motorist claim. 

Our attorney was able to more than double the initial offer from the client’s underinsured motorist carrier without having to go to trial, resulting in a total settlement of $110,000.
