Underinsured Motorist Causes Major Vehicle Accident

Our client’s vehicle was rear-ended by an underinsured motorist and pushed into oncoming traffic, resulting in a head-on collision with a speeding van.

Settlement Amount: $2,000,000


Sheff & Cook achieved this settlement for a 65-year-old woman whose vehicle was rear-ended and pushed into the oncoming lane, resulting in a head-on collision with a van. Through intensive investigation and case work-up, we were able to establish that the oncoming vehicle was speeding, resulting in recovery of an additional $1.5 million, which was critical as the driver who rear-ended our client had only minimal insurance coverage. 

In addition, we were able to obtain $150,000 from our client’s underinsured motorist insurance, with a waiver of the insurer’s reimbursement right, as well as a $250,000 worker’s compensation settlement, despite an initial coverage denial.

United in the fight for justice after personal injury and wrongful death, with nearly a billion dollars recovered for our clients.
