$370,000.00 Recovered for Bakersfield Motorist Rear-ended by an 18 Wheeler
Samer Habbas, of the Law Offices of Samer Habbas & Associates Inc. P.C. secured a settlement for $370,000.00 for a client who sustained back and shoulder injuries. Our client was rear ended by an 18 wheeler as she was operating her vehicle on the I-5 near Bakersfield, CA.
Liability for the collision was denied by the truck driver’s insurance company as they alleged that our client had cut off the truck and unnecessarily applied her brakes. Typical of an insurance company, they denied responsibility of the injuries, alleging that they were preexisting in nature. A lawsuit was filed against the truck company and litigation was commenced.
Due to Attorney Habbas’ approach, the insurance company for the truck company settled for $370,000.00 at mediation. .
