Many of our cases involve delicate interpersonal relationships that can and should affect the way a lawyer handles a case. Nothing is more delicate or difficult than a case where someone is injured by a family member’s negligence. In automobile negligence cases, the same insurance policies that protect us from the effects of other people’s negligence also compensates us when the wrong is committed by a family member.
In one such case, the firm represented a woman who was injured while a passenger in her husband’s vehicle. Her husband claimed that the accident was not his fault. The firm worked with the insurance company to resolve this delicate matter for the full policy limits of $250,000, prior to suit being filed.
Part of advocating for a client is appreciating their personal circumstances, and trying to bring the matter to a quick and fair resolution.
