GLP head-on collision case for $250,000.00

GLP attorney Janelle Carney represented a client who was involved in a head-on collision. As a result, she sustained an injury to her neck at C5-C6 that required surgery. A demand was sent to her own insurance carrier after settling with the at fault party. MOE refused to tender her policy limits available arguing that (the client’s) injury was not that severe. 

Litigation was initiated, including claims of bad faith, negligence, and violation of the Insurance Fair Conduct Act for their refusal to make a fair offer, and forcing their own insured to litigate. A lawsuit was filed in King County Superior Court. MOE filed a motion to change venue to Okanogan County and to bifurcate discovery. We filed an extensive response brief. Their motion was denied. We sent a full and final demand for a tender of the available limits. MOE finally did what we requested all along and paid their limits of $250,000.00.
