KGO Client Who Suffered Broken Knee in Accident Receives Maximum Insurance Settlement 

It was a normal commute home from the client’s office in Washington, DC when a driver negligently smashed his vehicle into him on his moped.  The strength of the impact caused the client to come off his moped, fly over the hood of the car, and smash his knee into the asphalt.  He was taken to the hospital where doctors told him that his right knee cap was shattered in three places, and that he would need invasive surgery and undergo extensive physical therapy to recover from his injuries.

Personally for the client, the crash and injuries could not have come at a worse time.  Being unable to work for several months, he and his wife had to put their dream on buying their first home on hold.  Further, they were expecting their second child, and their active and energetic five-year old son would be forced to go some time without playing with his dad.  

Getting the client and his family back on track was the number one priority.  To do that, the client needed a maximum settlement for his case.  Personal injury attorney Jonathan Oates investigated all potential forms of insurance coverage.  This meant digging up and analyzing every insurance policy the family had on their multiple vehicles to make sure every insurance dollar got used up.

Ultimately, the hard work paid off.  Car accident attorney Jonathan Oates found additional policies to increase the demand of money available, and maximize the recovery for his struggling client.  

In every case, a critical part of the representation is to do the legwork to find this insurance money to maximize the benefit and payoff amount for the client.  Oates was able to:

  1. Secure a maximum settlement from the additional coverage found;
  2. Double the amount of the recovery
  3. Pay off medical bills
  4. Compensate for time client lost from work
  5. Maximize money put back into the client’s pocket.
