Carl J. D’Adamo, Esquire of the Law Offices of Samuel Fishman successfully obtained a sizeable settlement in a Pennsylvania automobile accident case. In this case, a father and son suffered serious injuries after an intersectional collision.
The insurance company for two years refused to settle the case insisting that the injured clients did not breach the “limited tort” threshold which is applicable in certain Pennsylvania cases. The limited tort threshold is a bar which requires that a person suffer a “serious injury” in order to recover damages for pain and suffering.
While other attorneys may have given in to the insurance company and agreed to settle the case for pennies on the dollar, Attorney D’Adamo fought back. The clients were sent to be independently examined by appropriate expert witnesses, including top orthopedic experts. These doctors determined that both family members not only had suffered permanent traumatic injury, but also that the injuries were even more severe than originally believed.
On the eve of trial, the insurance company realized that Attorney D’Adamo and Attorney Samuel Fishman were ready and willing to take the case to a jury. In the face of mounting pressure, the insurance company backed down and the Law Offices of Samuel Fishman procured an aggregate settlement of $180,000 on behalf of its clients in a case where the initial settlement offers were well below $10,000.
The Law Offices of Samuel Fishman takes pride in ensuring that each and every client obtains a full recovery that represents the pain and suffering that they have endured and will continue to endure.
