In a previous case we handled, our client was a passenger in a stopped car that caught on fire after being hit by a tractor-trailer. The insurance company denied responsibility, claiming the car was stalled at an intersection, was unlit, and had no surrounding lights.
We were able to prove the insurance company wrong by sending investigators and personally visiting the scene of the crash. From the scene, we uncovered details that demonstrated the driver of the tractor-trailer had been responsible, and through the course of the litigation process, we were able to get a substantial settlement for the passenger of the car that had caught fire as a result of the collision.
The conditions during the collision were not as described by the insurance company, and our careful scrutiny of those details at the scene made the difference in highlighting the truth and securing our client’s settlement. Watch the video to learn more.
