$700,000 in Bodily Injury Case

Morris Law, LLC recently settled a bodily injury car accident case for a client that happened in Socastee, South Carolina, which is near Myrtle Beach, for $700,000 for the uninsured and liability portion. The client, who was a resident of Murrells Inlet, was driving east along SC Highway 544 as the at-fault motorist was going west. The at-fault driver crossed over the centerline, striking our client’s vehicle head-on. It was determined by authorities that the at-fault motorist was drunk driving at the time the collision occurred.

Our client suffered serious injuries in the collision and was transported to a hospital with pain in her back and chest, shoulder, leg and ankle. Surgery was performed to repair the client’s fractured arm and ankle. Upon being discharged from the hospital, she was required to do follow-up physical therapy and rehabilitative care. 

Upon negotiation between Attorney Jeffery D. Morris of Morris Law LLC and the insurers, both underinsurance and liability carriers agreed to pay the bodily injury and property damage limits to resolve the claim. Attorney Jeffrey D. Morris settled the case for $700,000.00, including the liability limits and underinsured limits.

Insurance Companies Frequently Make Low Offers

There is a tendency for insurance companies to offer low settlements to injured parties. They do this because they are a business that wants to make money, not pay off claims. Taking advantage of the victim's financial predicament when they have high medical bills and perhaps no income because of their injuries, the insurance companies know that the injured party may be suffering financially and make a low offer with the hopes that they will agree to it. 

If the injured individual accepts this low offer, they cannot return to the insurance company and request additional compensation if they find they incur more hospital bills and other losses later. In the event that the individual needs further treatment or surgery, they will have to pay for it out of pocket. The car accident lawyer you hire can advise you and help you obtain the full compensation you deserve to avoid this situation occurring.
