DDJ Achieves $1,000,000 Settlement for Car Accident Case
Posted By Darrigo, Diaz & Jimenez
Darrigo, Diaz & Jimenez represented a Tampa couple who were the victims of a reckless driver in North Carolina. There were several vehicles involved in this crash, which was caused by a DUI driver; his alcohol level was double the legal limits. Initially, the clients did not seem to have serious injuries. However, both of them later developed substantial injuries resulting from the impact.
The husband, a veteran, underwent subsequent shoulder surgery due to the injuries sustained in this auto accident. The wife had a fracture and injuries to her knee and hip which resulted in extensive medical treatment and ultimately surgery. In addition, one of the clients suffered mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI) which caused vertigo, dizziness, loss of hearing, and balance problems. She was diagnosed with Post-Concussion Syndrome.
As always, the Darrigo, Diaz & Jimenez legal team fought arduously for fair compensation for their clients and continued to pursue a higher settlement beyond the insurance companies’ initial offerings, using their experience and sharp legal skills to optimize the result. In fact, the DDJ legal team found additional coverage which the carrier had failed to disclose at the beginning of the case. The vigorous pursuit for justice rendered a just compensation of $1 million at mediation.
