Kibbey | Wagner Announces Two Million-Dollar-Plus Settlements
Defendants in two recent south Florida personal injury cases have agreed to pay million-dollar-plus settlements to injury victims represented by the South Florida law firm of Kibbey | Wagner.
Attorney for the injured victims, Jordan R. Wagner, stated, “Our clients have been through tremendous turmoil since these tragic accidents occurred, and we are proud knowing that our diligent efforts have helped them start the process of rebuilding their lives.”
The cases are notable – and similar – because of the severity of the plaintiffs’ injuries and the high settlement amount figures.
The first case involved an injury victim who was “T-boned” when the defendant ran a red light.
The victim, in this case, was severely injured and required neck surgery.
His ability to work was permanently impaired, and he will require medical treatment for the rest of his life.
The second case involved a pedestrian who was hit by an automobile.
The victim’s skull was fractured when he hit the ground, and as a result, the victim sustained long-term cognitive damage.
In both cases, the defendants were underinsured drivers. According to the Insurance Information Institute, more than 20 percent of Florida’s motorists are uninsured or underinsured.
Attorney Jordan R. Wagner added, “Thankfully, our clients had adequate uninsured motorist coverage to help them with their losses. It is something we advise everyone to make sure they have when they purchase their auto insurance.”
