Car Crash Injury – $520,000

Suzanne Skolnick wins $520,000 for car crash victim

Russell S. Kohn and Suzanne Skolnick Attorneys Kohn and Skolnick represented a 60-year-old man in an under insured motorist claim against Farmers. The plaintiff was injured in a 2010 rear-end collision that occurred while he on duty as a school district security officer. He sustained back, neck, and shoulder injuries and had undergone 4 ½ years of treatment, including neck and back epidural injections and 2 lumbar radio frequency ablation procedures by the time the matter reached arbitration. The claim against the under insured motorist settled for the $15,000 minimal policy limit. After the worker’s compensation case was resolved, the case was mediated unsuccessfully with Farmers offering only $30,000. The case then proceeded to arbitration before Judge Herbert Hoffman. Less than one week before the hearing, Farmers increased its offer to $175,000. Judge Hoffman determined damages in the amount of $681,606.20. After reduction for the worker’s compensation benefits and the third party recovery, Judge Hoffman’s net award totaled $520,000.
