Firm founder Jim Terrell and I were successful in an automobile/pedestrian parking lot accident case, obtaining a $115,000 settlement for our client’s injuries.
As our 70-year-old client was walking to her car, she was was struck and knocked down by a distracted driver, who was looking at the wallet he dropped. Our client sustained a fractured bone in her wrist and soft tissue injuries to her neck back and shoulders.
She underwent surgery for her wrist fracture, and missed several months of work. In addition to her wage loss, medical bills, and other losses, her quality of life was greatly affected. She was actively involved in her church, Habitat for Humanity, and missed her weekly golf outings with her friends.
Terrell • Hogan was successful in recovering from both the at-fault driver’s liability insurance carrier and Underinsured/Uninsured Motorist’s (UM) insurance carrier.
Uninsured Motorist Coverage
UM coverage acts as a safety net if you get into a serious accident caused by a driver with little or no insurance. It can reimburse your bills caused by the accident, plus cover disability, lost wages and pain and suffering when the at-fault driver does not have enough insurance coverage to cover your losses.
Parking Lot Accidents
Parking lot accidents are more frequent than you think. An average of one in five accidents happens in a parking lot, so it’s important to pay extra attention while walking or driving in them.
