Burger was able to settle the case with the defendant's insurance company after he had filed a lawsuit on behalf of the firm's client.
St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) April 23, 2015
According to court documents, Gary Burger, partner and attorney with Cantor & Burger, LLC, recently settled an auto accident case for $95,000. The St. Louis, MO, firm wrapped up the case on March 20, 2015, for a client who was injured as a passenger in a car.
According to court documents, Burger was able to settle the case with the defendant's insurance company after he had filed a lawsuit on behalf of the firm's client, Melissa Moser. Moser had been a passenger in the back seat of a vehicle driven by her co-worker.
According to court documents, allegedly, as the car was traveling down the road, a driver -- the defendant in the case -- turned left into Moser's coworker's car, causing a car accident into the side where Moser was seated.
According to court documents, Moser was taken to the emergency room with severe injuries. Over the past two years, she has recovered with the help of her primary physician, physical therapists and a pain management physician, along with her car accident attorneys at Cantor & Burger.
Geico, the defendant's insurer, was held to a strict timeline in order to settle the case. They needed to work fast or else their defendant would be personally liable for anything over the $100,000 limits on the policy.
According to court documents, “Thankfully, the case was settled ahead of schedule on the morning the depositions were to take place”. This helped save Moser time and money in her case.
"With only $20,000 in medical expenses for Melissa, the $95,000 settlement is a great result," Burger said.
Despite Moser's health insurance policy, she still had outstanding medical liens, so the award will help to cover her bills. Currently, Cantor & Burger is working to negotiate all outstanding medical liens to help Moser save money on these costs, too.
The case was Case No. 1422-CC9823 in St. Louis County. The outcome of the suit was approved by the Circuit Court for the City of St. Louis, Twenty-Second Judicial Circuit, in the State of Missouri.
