Non-Surgical Neck/Back Injury Case

Mr. Stavley represented a construction worker who was injured when a truck in oncoming traffic tried to make a last-second left turn across traffic but instead hit the construction worker causing a significant collision.

Mr. Stavley resolved the case against the at-fault driver's insurance carrier for policy limits - $25,000 - and then brought a lawsuit against the construction worker's own insurance company for underinsured motorist (UIM) coverage. The case settled shortly before trial for an additional $500,000.
