This Client was a passenger in a taxi that was struck by another vehicle. As a result of the other vehicle, the client incurred a fractured leg injury. The other vehicle crossed the median to cause the accident. Unfortunately, the driver responsible for the accident carried only a $20K insurance policy. Attorney Facchini demanded the full price of the policy, which was extended by the responsible party’s insurance company.
When the responsible party does not carry a high enough policy to fully compensate for an injury, Attorney Michael D. Facchini will pursue a claim to recover monetary compensation pursuant to the “Underinsured Motorist” part of the client’s policy. In this particular case, the client did not carry a higher car insurance policy allowing for additional compensation for the client’s permanent injuries. Just a reminder that every case is unique and the outcome depends on many factors.
