Some lawyers love to brag about their victories. Well, it's not a win or a victory if the lawyer rejected the insurance company’s offer of $1,000,000.00, only to be awarded $500,000.00 by a jury.

  10. $390K Lawsuit against insurance company for failing to properly evaluate and pay a claim for a terrible car accident in which our client suffered serious physical and mental injuries.  This was an uninsured motorist claim because the third party who caused the accident did not have a license or insurance to compensate our client.  The client’s insurance company initially only wanted to pay $50,000 but we were able to resolve difficult insurance issues in our client’s favor.  Start to finish we settled this case for our client quickly.
  11. $390K  Lawsuit involving claims of bad faith and breach of contract stemming from a car crash.  Insurance company initially denied the claim and we forced them to pay our client.  The insurance company knew if they went before a jury they would have had no defense.
  12. $360K Lawsuit involving tractor-trailer crash.  Driver was rear-ended on I83 in York, PA by a truck driver who was not paying attention.  The Defendant actually argued it was not his fault but we overcame this position favorably for our client.
