Burger Law’s new attorney, Michael Sheldon, assisted in representing our client, Amanda, in an auto crash case.

He was able to obtain a $100,000 policy limit settlement after we received the insurance company’s highest offer of $3,900 pre-suit.

Amanda was rear-ended at highway speeds by a distracted driver who was looking at their phone instead of the road. The sudden and unexpected impact jolted Amanda causing her to forcefully hit her head. She suffered a concussion and painful injuries to her neck and back.

Amanda sought treatment on her own from a local chiropractor and was treated for about a year. We obtained her medical records and bills and we submitted a demand to the insurance company.

But the insurance company would not consider the bills and treatment with the chiropractor, and downplayed the severity of Amanda’s head injury. They only offered $3,900 to settle the claim, even though Amanda had about $15,000 in medical bills.

This is a typical tactic of an insurance adjuster – declare some damages are not considered. It is BS.

Our office strongly disagreed with the insurance company’s value of this claim and opinion to not include the chiropractic treatment. We filed suit and strongly litigated the case. We completed a written discovery and did not receive a higher offer, and then proceeded with depositions. Attorney Genavieve Perino deposed the other driver and got them to admit complete fault for the accident.

After deposition, we made a bad faith demand and discussed settlement with the defense counsel. We were able to negotiate a settlement for the policy limits of $100,000. We were glad to get this great recovery for Amanda.
