$100,000 Settlement for San Francisco Runner Hit by Car
$100,000 Policy Limits Settlement for Runner Hit by Car in San Francisco
A 29-year-old project manager at a large satellite data company suffered serious injuries as a runner hit by a car in San Francisco. A driver sped through a red light while the project manager was jogging across an intersection at Market Street and Dolores Street in front of Whole Foods Market.
The runner suffered multiple broken lower leg bones and a fractured pelvis, as well as a fractured vertebra. He underwent emergency surgery for the fractures and a severed artery in his leg, and spent a lengthy time in the hospital recuperating.
Get Help When Things Get Complicated
The medical bills were significant, the driver’s insurance was denying liability, and the police report was incomplete. To make matters worse, the runner had serious difficulties getting his health insurance to pay for his treatment, due to multiple clerical errors. The runner was overwhelmed by all the paperwork, the insurance claims process, and about paying his medical bills. As his bills went rapidly to collections, he knew he needed help, so he hired Sally Morin Personal Injury Lawyers.
Sally and her team faced a perfect storm of challenges in the case, including low insurance policy limits, a liability dispute, and strict medical lien reimbursement. The driver carried only the California state minimum for liability insurance, $15,000. Even though the project manager carried Underinsured Motorist Coverage on his own auto policy, which was helpful, his bills outstripped the pool of insurance funds by several hundred thousand dollars. The young man was facing staggering medical debt due to the accident.
Exorbitant Medical Bills Shouldn't Consume Your Injury Settlement
However, after obtaining the $100,000 of available insurance funds, the Sally Morin team negotiated the his medical bills down drastically. They pushed his health insurance company to pay the fair amount owed to his medical providers. The team organized his paperwork, tracked his debts, and helped him protect his credit score, alleviating his stress and allowing him to focus on his recovery.
