Partner Mark Altemose Recovers $345,000 for 67-Year-Old Woman who Suffered a Hip Fracture-dislocation and Multiple Rib Fractures in an Auto Accident
Our client, a 65-year-old woman and retiree, was a passenger in her mother’s vehicle when her mother failed to make a turn, causing the vehicle to hit a drainage culvert and telephone pole. She suffered six broken ribs and a fracture-dislocation of her left hip requiring surgery. She was initially hospitalized for five days and then spent twenty days in a rehabilitation facility.
We recovered $245,000 from her mother’s liability insurance policy and then pursued an underinsured motorist’s claim and recovered the $100,000 limits, for a total recovery of $345,000.
