Graves Thomas Injury Law Group Secures $847,320 Verdict For Car Accident Victim
Graves Thomas Injury Law attorney Matthew M. Thomas and team secured $847,320 in damages to fully and fairly compensate their a client who suffered traumatic back injury and required surgery following a car collision – a verdict 17.6 times the highest and best offer of the insurance company that forced them to trial.
“It is clear that the jury stood behind the facts of the case and that truth prevailed,” Thomas said following the verdict that came down Friday, April 13. “This insurance company fought us on all fronts, tried to evade the fact our client was injured, despite fault having been admitted. Our citizens, this community was able to look at the evidence for what it was, which allowed them to make the right decision and help make our client whole.“
According to records, the incident occurred in late 2014 in downtown Vero Beach, where a local woman was impacted in automobile accident at Commerce Avenue and 20th Street. She sustained serious back injuries that required surgery and have caused further limitations. Rejecting an initial settlement of $48,000 that did not cover medical expenses, trial was set and concluded April 13, 2018 in Vero Beach, where a verdict was returned in just under four hours.
Our client and our entire team are grateful for this jury’s verdict. Justice was served and our client may now begin her journey forward with the rest of her life.”
