Outcome: $2,240,000 Judgment After Jury Verdict
Auto Accident - Personal Injury
After rejecting a $5,000 settlement offer recommended by her first attorney, the victim of an Orange Park auto accident hired Ansbacher Law. Our client knew her injuries were serious, but nobody was listening.
After the collision, she had trouble concentrating, suffered from migraine headaches, and her academic and work performance went into decline. Her close family relationships began to suffer from her memory loss and uncharacteristic short temper. Impact of the collision and airbag deployment created serious permanent injuries. The professionals at Ansbacher Law went to work.
Working with her medical professionals, we discovered that our client suffered a mild traumatic brain injury in the collision. Although most victims recover over time, the injuries can be permanent and life-changing. This was, unfortunately, the reality of our client’s situation. We carefully documented her injury through neuropsychology and with the assistance of neurologists and a neurosurgeon retained by Ansbacher Law. We left no stone unturned and located a witness who observed the at-fault driver smoking marijuana shortly before the accident. Finally, after carefully documenting the fault of the other driver, and the serious nature of our client’s injuries Ansbacher Law submitted her claim to the insurance company. We made numerous detailed demands for the insurance company to pay the $100,000 policy limits, but when they chose to play hardball, we did not give up.
We filed a lawsuit against the at-fault driver and when a fair settlement was not offered at mediation, we took her case to the Clay County jury for justice. Ansbacher Law hired the most qualified experts available to explain her injuries to the jury. After years of denial and having her injuries minimized, our client was validated when the jury returned a unanimous verdict in her favor. Ansbacher Law believed in our client and stuck with her all the way.
