$2,025,000 Settlement – Motor Vehicle Collision (80 Times Insurance Policy Limits)
Shiver Hamilton recovered $2,025,000 for the widow of a car wreck victim. Before Shiver Hamilton became involved, the widow would only have collected $50,000. Because the insurance company rejected the widow’s initial offer to settle, it was liable for damages in excess of the at-fault driver’s policy limits. Just prior to trial, the insurance company offered 80 times its policy limits to the widow.
