The insurance company lawyers argued that the ambulance driver had a yellow light, and therefore he was not at fault. We disproved this liability defense through the depositions of the ambulance driver, her passenger, and the investigating police officer.
Next, the insurance company lawyers argued that Steven was not hurt that bad in this crash. They hired an orthopedic doctor who said Steven’s injuries were minimal. We disproved this defense through Steven’s medical records and own doctors.
Our lawyers negotiated a $500,000 settlement for Steven at mediation. Attorney fees were $200,000, and litigation expenses were $28,000.
