Jury Verdict for a client injured in a car accident (2017)div>
Paul H. was driving his car in when someone turned left for no apparent reason and side-swiped his car. Unfortunately, the car hit Paul right in the driver’s door. Ultimately he needed surgery to help fix disc problems in his lower back. In fact, he actually had stem cells injected into his lower back. This was one of the first uses of stem cells in this kind of procedure in the country. After several months of litigation, Fuicelli & Lee, P.C. settled the case for the at-fault driver’s policy limits of $250,000.00.
Keith recently obtained a winning verdict in Adams County in a case involving a pit-bull attack. Client Suzanna, R. was walking her two month old puppy in her back yard when a pit bull jumped over the fence and attacked her, biting her in the face. The firm filed suit against the landlord of the property for allowing the pit-bull to live in this densely populated residential neighborhood. After hearing all the evidence, the firm obtained a verdict which came close to $245,000 including interest and costs..
On June 8, 2008, Kris K. was driving his car when he was struck from behind by a drunk driver driving approximately 90 miles an hour. Due to this crash, Kris suffered significant injuries to his back. After investigating the accident, the lawyers at Fuicelli & Lee, P.C. determined there were two insurance policies that would provide coverage for the drunk driver. Faced with the serious injuries to the client, coupled with the aggravated liability of the crash, both insurance companies agree to pay their policy limits for a total of $125,000.
In April of 2012, Keith Fuicelli obtained an award for injuries a client sustained in a motor vehicle crash that, with interest, exceeds two million dollars. While the award itself is quite substantial, the more surprising fact is that American Family Insurance (the client’s own insurance company) originally valued the claim at only $100,000. After presenting the client’s damages during a binding arbitration proceeding, the judge agreed with Mr. Fuicelli that the client’s damages far exceeded the one million dollars in available coverage.
Deb C. worked hard her entire life and finally purchased what for her was one of her dreams, a second mountain home in the mountains. The property was a fixer-upper and Deb. C. poured her blood, sweat and tears into the property. After more than a year fixing the place up, it was finally something she was immensely proud of. Then one day she returned to the home and could not believe her eyes. There was water everywhere and her home was trashed! A short investigation revealed the culprit; a toilet supply line had fractured due to a manufacturing defect. Deb. C’s insurance company spent well over $100,000.00 to repair her home. As you can imagine, there were still many expenses her insurance company did not cover. For example, she was entitled to compensation for the “loss of use” in her property. Fuicelli & Lee, P.C. tried unsuccessfully to get the manufacturer to the toilet supply line to cover these expenses. Ultimately, after suit was filed, the manufacturer (Masco Corporation) agreed to pay $45,000.00 to cover Deb C.’s additional losses.div>
