    Plaintiff vs. Liberty Mutual

    The plaintiff was injured in a T-bone accident caused by a driver that ran a red light. The collision resulted in painful injuries including lower disc damage and herniation in the neck and back. We pursued underinsured motorist coverage from the insurance company, which did not offer substantial benefits. To exhibit the extent of the plaintiff’s injuries, we presented MRI scans.

    A jury in St. Mary’s County Circuit Court awarded the plaintiff $20,000 in financial damages and $125,000 in non-economic damages, for a total recovery of $145,000 in compensation.

    Beckert v. State Farm

    Our client was hit by an underinsured motorist (UIM), who had just a $30,000 policy limit for liability. State Farm, our client’s insurer, did not want to pay anything to our client through their UIM policy. Attorney James Farmer successfully took the case to court and won an $89,872 verdict for our client. Our client’s UIM policy is capped at $50,000. The other driver’s insurer paid $30,000 and State Farm paid $20,000, up from the zero dollars they initially wanted to provide. This case shows why all drivers should carry strong UM and UIM insurance coverage. A $100,000 cap should be the minimum amount you purchase.
