Injury Claim Settled for 23 Times More Than Initial Offer
December 29, 2011
Todd Henningsen was able to successfully secure a settlement of a personal injury claim on behalf of his client for 23 times more than what the insurance company initially offered. Our client had been negotiating her own claim with the insurance company for over a year when she received her first initial offer of $1,000.00. Although she was not sure of the exact value of her case, she knew that she had been significantly injured and decided that she needed to consult with a legal professional. After speaking with other lawyers who offered her very little advice on how to proceed, she saw Mr. Henningsen on a television show and decided to take him up on his offer of a free consultation. We spoke with her at length about her case and felt confident that her claim was worth much more than the initial offer of $1,000.00. After evaluating the claim and submitting it to the insurance company, Mr. Henningsen was able to secure a settlement of $23,000.00 to resolve the personal injury claim on behalf of his client. What is even more striking about this case, is that the client’s health insurance company was claiming that they had a right to be paid back from any money that the client received. The amount the health insurance carrier was claiming that should be paid back was roughly $6,500.00. Thus, had the client accepted the initial $1,000.00 offer, the health insurance carrier would have been able to claim that they were entitled to all of the money that she had just received and she would have been left with nothing. Instead, Mr. Henningsen was able to negotiate with the health insurance carrier and get them to accept less than half of what they were claiming. This translated to the client receiving even more money for what she had been through. In addition, she no longer had to worry about the health insurance carrier trying to sue her for failing to make payments to them.
