John Coco represented an elderly couple from Queens who were both seriously injured when a distracted driver ran a red light. Both clients suffered multiple fractures and other injuries.
John reached an initial settlement with the defendant’s insurance company for $200,000 and a subsequent settlement with the clients’ own insurance company for an additional $300,000. Thankfully the clients had Supplemental Underinsured Motorist coverage, which provided them with additional insurance in case they were injured and the liable party was underinsured.
The clients used the settlement compensation to pay for medical bills, equipment, and home alterations which were not covered by insurance.
