Our client was a 75 year old visitor to the United States who suffered significant injuries in a single-vehicle car accident in Northampton County, Pennsylvania when the driver of the rental car he was a passenger in struck a guardrail on I-78 at over 80 mph.
The insurance carrier for the rental car company attempted to deny coverage under an excess liability policy that had been purchased for the rental vehicle involved in the accident.
The insurance company originally offered our client $15,000 to settle the case before he came to Galfand Berger for representation. After suit was filed, the insurance carrier eventually acknowledged that the excess insurance policy was in effect for this accident and agreed to settle for $900,000.00.
Philadelphia auto accident attorney, Michael Malvey, settled this matter for $900,000.00. If you or a loved one has been injured in a car crash, please call 800-222-8792 or contact us online .
