A husband and wife were traveling east on St. Lucie West Boulevard when an offending driver who was traveling west in a straight lane made a last minute decision to make a left hand turn resulting in a serious crash with our client’s vehicle. Both vehicles were totaled. The clients sustained multiple serious injuries with the husband requiring back surgery.
The insurance company for the at fault driver, as well as the clients own uninsured motorist carrier, refused to cooperate by fairly evaluating the case so the clients were forced into
litigation. The at fault driver dodged service of process causing a delay in moving the case forward. Once served, the at fault driver denied liability by claiming he unexpectedly passed out at the wheel.
Gloria Seidule proved he was at fault through discovery and depositions forcing a policy limit settlement for her clients totaling $400,000.
