Car Accident Claim Settled for $95,000.00

After lengthy negotiations, Todd Henningsen recently resolved a claim on behalf of a pedestrian who had been struck by a drunk driver. The family of the victim contacted Mr. Henningsen just shortly after the incident occurred. Initially, the family thought that it was a situation that they could handle on their own, but after hearing about Mr. Henningsen's success in claims against drunk drivers, they contacted the firm for a free consultation. Mr. Henningsen met with the family and realized that the insurance company for the drunk driver was trying to place blame on the pedestrian by arguing that he was crossing the street in an area where there was no crosswalk.

Upon undertaking the representation, the firm immediately went to work in investigating the claim. A thorough background investigation in to the driving history of the drunk driver revealed that this was not the first time that the driver had gotten behind the wheel while drinking. In addition, Mr. Henningsen went to the scene of the accident and documented the fact that there was no fault on the part of the pedestrian as this was the only safe area to cross the street.

Once the client had completed his medical treatment, Mr. Henningsen immediately submitted the personal injury claim for review by the insurance company. The insurance company's initial offer was only $40,000.00. After consulting with the family, a decision was made to file a personal injury lawsuit against the drunk driver. After completing discovery, Mr. Henningsen was able to convince the insurance defense attorney to make an offer of $95,000.00 to resolve the entire personal injury claim and ultimately hold the drunk driver accountable for his actions.
