Settlement for Plaintiff Injured in Rear-End Collision
June 8, 2018
Attorney Patrick O’Hara recently settled a case on behalf of a man who was injured by a negligent driver who collided into the rear of Plaintiff’s vehicle while stopped at a red light in Spring, Texas. The Plaintiff was in a left turn only lane with several cars behind him. The light turned green for the lanes of traffic to the right but remained red for the left turn only lane. A driver behind the Plaintiff saw cars moving to his right and without looking at the light for his lane of traffic began moving forward. As a result, Plaintiff was struck from behind by a vehicle. The Plaintiff suffered injuries to his neck and eventually had to undergo multiple surgeries to address his pain. The negligent driver was insured by PURE insurance.
The Plaintiff attempted to resolve the case on his own with the insurance company, but PURE insurance refused to offer him anything. The insurance company claimed that the property damage was not severe enough to cause his injuries. This is a common defense made by insurance companies. Plaintiff hired an attorney after unsuccessfully attempting to resolve the claim with the insurance adjustor on his own. After litigating the case, Plaintiff was able to resolve the case with the insurance company.
PURE is an acronym for Privilege Underwriters Reciprocal Exchange. It is an insurance company that caters to high net worth individuals. The insurance company advertises itself as an insurance company “designed exclusively for financially successful families.” PURE Insurance hires lawyers and adjustors that work hard to protect the insurance company’s assets and the assets of its high net-worth insureds.
