A client was driving on Main Street in North Myrtle Beach when a car driving next to them made an improper U-turn. The U-turn was made directly in front of the driver and caused damage to the car as well as injured the driver.
The injured driver complained and was treated for neck and back injuries, ultimately ending in neck surgery.
After evaluating the high medical bills and testimony from the client's doctor that said this injury was directly caused by the accident, Myrtle Beach Personal Injury Attorney Kevin Mulet demanded the full policy limits of the liability insurance policy. The insurance company agreed with the demand and settled the case for the full limits of $100,000.
Once a client has reached the maximum settlement amount of a liability policy, if the medical bills or damages still exceed that amount, they may go after Underinsured Motorist (UIM) coverage to settle the final damages.
Attorney Mulet also demanded the full policy limits of the Underinsured Motorist policy for this client and settled again for the full policy amount. This coverage awarded $25,000.
In total, our client who was injured in a car accident and needed surgery, settled his case for all insurance money available at $125,000.
