Case Result: Example of Why You Need an Attorney If You are Injured
Steinberg Law Firm Attorney Annie Andrews recently negotiated a $150,000.00 settlement for a client with $3,287 in medical bills who was rear-ended by a drunk driver.
US Highway 178 is particularly dark at night as it stretches across the countryside of Dorchester County. On March 24, 2022, it was dark, and the streets were wet with rain.
Our client was traveling home to his family when suddenly a drunk driver violently rear-ended him traveling at a rate of over 55 miles per hour.
A state trooper found the other driver was grossly intoxicated with a blood alcohol content of 0.15%, nearly twice the legal limit.
Our client immediately called The Steinberg Law Firm.
Without an attorney, the insurance company may have offered him $3,287 (the amount of his medical bills) or perhaps even three times that much ($10,000) because Punitive Damages are often three times an injured person’s medical bills.
The insurance company originally offered Steinberg Law Firm attorney Annie Andrews $28,736.76 to settle the case. Within two months, she had zealously fought to negotiate a settlement of $150,000.00 for her client.
This case exemplifies how a skilled attorney can fight to ensure you receive medical treatment for your injuries and compensation that is fair.
