Tom Davis and his team settled a Missouri car wreck case for the $250,000 policy limits. As a result of the accident, the client suffered rib fractures and other injuries, which led to a four-day initial hospital stay. However, the paid medical was only $16,000. Tom sent the insurance company a 90-day policy limit demand for the full $250,000 to the insurance company, but their initial offer in response was only $50,000.
Tom then responded with a lengthy email explaining how the defendant ran from the scene and hid in the woods, and given the defendant’s lengthy DUI and felony-persistent history, was probably intoxicated. Tom also sent a petition and first round discovery, threatening to file suit and focus the lawsuit on the defendant and his drunk driving history, refusing to budge from the $250,000 policy limits. Eventually, the insurance company caved and agreed to pay the limits. Ultimately, the client is very happy with the outcome of the case.
