Insurance Pays More Than Double to Client After Jury Decision

Our client was traveling on a rural Oneida County highway when an inattentive driver pulled out in front of him from a stop sign. Our client’s vehicle was totaled. He sustained neck and shoulder injuries which required medical care totaling $12,200. 

When the insurance company offered just $8,000, Attorney Doug Ross filed suit. The insurance company then not only denied some of the medical bills but also refused to admit responsibility for the accident. Shortly before trial, the insurance company offered $12,000 – still less than our client’s medical bills. 

Attorney Ross convinced a jury that the defendant was entirely at fault for the accident and that all of our client's medical bills were related. The total verdict was $26,237, more than double the insurance company’s best offer.
