Jury Awards Plaintiff $300,000
The plaintiff held underinsured motorist coverage through Allstate and sought coverage beyond that granted by the settlement with the driver’s insurance company.
The defense argued that the driver had a history of reckless driving and that the plaintiff had made a conscious decision to get into the car and never called authorities to report the speeding despite having her cell phone.
Beyond that, the defense claimed that the plaintiff’s injuries were not that severe, and that she had maintained a full recovery.
The plaintiff maintained that her injuries caused her to experience frequent headaches and her injuries interfered with physical activity.
The jury found in favor of the plaintiff awarding a verdict of $300,000.
