More and more we are seeing insurance companies making low ball settlement offers to people injured by motorcycle accidents, automobile accidents, and trucking accidents. The insurance companies are counting on injured victims to take the low ball settlement offer because they are desperate for cash. Unfortunately, this settlement strategy has worked very well for the insurance companies when dealing with an injured person who is not represented by a lawyer.
The attorneys at Colombo Law represent children and adults in Morgantown, Clarksburg, Bridgeport, Fairmont, Elkins, Buckhannon, Weston, and throughout North Central West Virginia who have been injured in car wrecks, motorcycle accidents, and trucking accidents. We know how to handle aggressive insurance adjusters and the insurance company attorneys. Clients know that when they hire our law firm that they are hiring a law firm that is ready, willing and able to try the most complex case.
For example, Dino Colombo recently tried a case for a client where State Farm had offered only $10,000 to settle a rear end collision type of accident. The client had a permanent neck injury and $10,000 would just barely cover the medical expenses. The case went to trial and a Monongalia County jury returned a verdict of over $400,000 for this client.
There is no way any attorney can guarantee a result for our client. Also, simply because there was a significant verdict for this particular client it does not automatically mean that all cases will end this way. However, what is important to know is that a well prepared trial attorney, who has the experience necessary to try complicated cases involving permanent spinal cord injuries or brain injury cases, is vital to a successful outcome.
