John Molinari represented a 45-year-old attorney who was a passenger in a car operated by her husband when they were struck by a car that made a left turn in front of them. She sustained severe injuries, including lumbar disc herniations, bulges, and radiculopathy which required epidural and medial branch block injections, a bilateral sacroiliac fusion, and a right sacroiliac fusion revision. In addition, she sustained a left hip labral tear, which required an arthrogram injection.
Plaintiff had prior counsel that was successful in obtaining the full limits of the tortfeasor’s $100,000 policy. John was hired to proceed on an underinsured motorist claim and was successful in recovering $375,000 of the remaining $400,000 in coverage, bringing the total recovery to $475,000.
