John Lee resolved a case for a client who was injured in a car accident that was the fault of another driver. Even though our client was injured, and was not at fault, she was issued a citation by the police, after which the other driver’s insurance company refused to accept liability for the accident. When John first met with the client, she told him how the police got it all wrong and had very few correct facts in the accident report. The client and her husband were seriously injured and the responsible party was saying they weren’t going to pay.
We took on the case and began investigating. We were able to find a pair of independent witnesses that said our client was not at fault, and that the police did get it wrong. Based on this evidence, the at-fault driver’s insurance company made us a settlement offer that paid for our client’s medical bills, and gave them a little money too.
If it weren’t for that extra leg work, we would have never been able to get our clients what they deserved.
