Verdict & Settlement Wins
Put Your Accident Behind You
Court: Cuyahoga County Common Pleas
Plaintiff's Counsel: David M. Paris
Insurance Companies Pay Family $6.3 Million
Plaintiff was in a severe collision. The other driver only had $12,500 worth of insurance limits. Litigation ensued against four other insurance policies issued to the employers of our client and our client’s husband, as well as their umbrella carrier for underinsurance coverage. Plaintiffs successfully claimed that the language in all the employer’s policies which defined who was an “insured” was sufficiently vague and ambiguous to include Plaintiffs. The Plaintiff sustained a head injury which resulted in brain damage. Her speech was affected as well as her left arm and left leg. She cannot return to her occupation as a registered nurse. Her husband quit his job to help take care of their two children. The case was resolved shortly before trial.
