It was great to be able to give our client closure after she sustained injuries in an auto collision nearly two years ago. Unfortunately, she had elected limited tort coverage. Even with a fairly good recovery, she continued to have lingering problems from her injury. She was very happy with the outcome.
In handling a wage loss claim for a client who injured his neck and shoulder in an auto collision, I was able to obtain $20,000 more in wage loss benefits than the auto insurance carrier offered. When the carrier refused to pay the actual loss of income to my client, I fought for the wage loss benefits he deserved. It was not fair that my client lost his part-time business he had grown by working nights and weekends. You should be sure you have adequate wage loss coverage on your auto insurance.
A long-term disability client that is represented by Attorney Joyce Novotny-Prettiman received long awaited good news about her claim that was denied by the insurance company. After suffering with significant low back pain, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome and Sjogren’s syndrome, Joyce won her appeal and she will receive two years of benefits.
Jeffrey Monzo, one of the firm’s personal injury attorneys, recently obtained a $295,000.00 settlement for a client who was injured in a fall while working as an independent contractor for a Power Company. The client developed Compartment Syndrome resulting in a partial amputation of his leg. Despite the fact that liability was disputed in that it was alleged that the client’s fall was a result of his own negligence the settlement was obtained when we were able to demonstrate the condition on the Company’s premises that caused the fall and the causation of the injury from the fall.
After suffering serious injuries as a result of being T-boned at an intersection, including herniated discs in the neck and back along with permanent nerve damage, Attorney Joyce Novotny-Prettiman collected the policy limits on an underinsured motorist claim. The coverage was collected from a car that was not insured on the same policy as the car she was driving when injured and was possible because the family car exclusion was struck down in Joyce’s case of Gallagher v. GEICO.
Attorney Joyce Novotny-Prettiman was able to obtain payment of stacked underinsured motorist (UIM) coverage for her client who was injured in an auto crash. The paperwork from the client’s insurance company showed UIM coverage of $50,000 per vehicle, unstacked. Joyce investigated the waiver and successfully argued it was invalid. She was able to recover stacked UIM benefits of $100,000 for her client.
It was a great victory to be able to obtain income loss benefits for a self-employed client who was hurt in a car crash and not able to work. As bills were piling up, the wage loss coverage purchased by my client through his auto insurance was supposed to be there to help him through this exact situation. I was able to battle his own insurance company to get those benefits paid.
Our client was at a house in Monroeville, Pennsylvania, when she tripped and fell on uneven stairs leading from the front door to the driveway. Her injuries included a fracture to her proximal humerus, which required surgery, damage to her teeth, and multiple other injuries. Our personal injury attorneys worked with an engineer and prepared a report detailing numerous defects in the stairs, including the absence of a handrail, leading to our client’s fall. A lawsuit was filed in Allegheny County and our attorneys obtained a substantial settlement for our client prior to trial.
