Associate Attorney Michelle Hunter
successfully recovered a settlement reaching the policy limits of $250,000 on an auto accident
case. Our client was traveling northbound on Olympia Road in the city of Mission Viejo, CA when a drunk driver
traveling in the opposite direction swerved into opposing traffic, colliding head-on with our client’s vehicle, and causing another collision. Upon investigation, it was later discovered that the drunk driver had no insurance coverage.
Our client, who has a history of prior neck surgeries and severe lower back pain, experienced a resurgence of these pre-existing issues as a result of the accident. In addition, the collison inflicted further trauma on her body, exacerbating her pain and discomfort. Initially, she pursued conservative and non-invasive treatments to manage her condition. However, she received little to no comfort from these treatments and was referred to a neurosurgeon who recommended micro decompression surgery as a potential solution. Ultimately, the client decided against moving forward with the surgical option.
Associate Attorney Michelle Hunter took on the case and despite challenges she faced with the uninsured motorist, Michelle successfully secured the maximum uninsured motorist policy limits of $250,000 for our client.
