$100,000 Settlement for Motor Vehicle Accident Insurance Coverage

The firm represented a driver who was injured when another driver cut into his lane of travel to get to an exit that he missed. Our client was initially denied several hundred thousand dollars of Personal Injury Protection (PIP) benefits under the insurance policy held by the owner of the vehicle he was driving. The carrier ultimately agreed to provide PIP coverage after the firm convincingly argued that the policy provided coverage to permissive users of the vehicle.
The case settled against the other driver for the full liability policy limits of $100,000 prior to trial.
