Tom S.

Tom had been run over by an SUV while driving his motorcycle. He suffered severe injuries to his right lower extremity. Initially the insurance company attempted to place responsibility for the accident on Tom. Defendant had $1,000,000.00 in auto insurance coverage and, ultimately, $1,000,000.00 was offered in settlement. I refused to accept the policy limits, having discovered that the driver had access to a substantial trust. As a term of settlement, I demanded the driver pay $500,000.00 of her own money and achieved a total settlement of $1,500,000.00
