The 17 year old plaintiff, a recent high-school graduate, had dreams of becoming a beautician before her right hand and arm were severely injured in a car accident caused by a negligent driver. Even after surgery and physical therapy, the plaintiff had not regained full use of her dominant hand and additional surgeries were likely in her future. Her dreams of becoming a beautician in particular were on hold, and the likelihood of permanent reduced function in her hand was an enormous impact on her long-term earnings capacity.
At a cost of already more than $50,000 in out-of-pocket costs, the negligent driver's policy limits were not even close to covering the plaintiff's current and ongoing expenses, but her own insurer was dragging its feet on paying its underinsured policy coverage. The Law Offices of Jared R. Rose were able to collect $200,000 in underinsured motorist-bodily injury benefit for the plaintiff.
Past results afford no guarantee of future results and every case is different and must be judged on its own merits.
