Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 17, 2011
Los Angeles car accident attorney Scott J. Corwin, principal attorney of Scott J. Corwin, A Professional Law Corporation recently obtained out-of-court settlements totaling $450,000 from insurance companies on behalf of two Southern Californian drivers injured in automobile accidents.
Scott J. Corwin represented a 57-year-old Southern California marketing director in his auto accident claim. The plaintiff’s vehicle was rear-ended by the defendant’s vehicle while they were both traveling southbound on the I-405 freeway in the city of Torrance, California. The plaintiff suffered neck injuries in addition to vehicle damage. Prior to being represented by an attorney, the insurance company for the defendant offered the plaintiff $200 to settle his neck injury claim. After hiring attorney Corwin, the plaintiff received $100,000 in the settlement of his case; more than 500 times what the insurance company offered him before he hired Mr. Corwin.
In another auto accident case, Los Angeles car accident lawyer Scott J. Corwin successfully settled the claims of a severely injured 78-year-old retired man in Los Angeles. The gentleman was injured in two successive accidents that occurred within six weeks of each other. The first accident occurred when the plaintiff was stopped for traffic on Sepulveda Boulevard when another driver exited his driveway and rear-ended the plaintiff’s vehicle. Six weeks later, the plaintiff was again rear-ended in very slow traffic on Pico Boulevard. Both accidents resulted in only minor property damage, with combined total damage to the plaintiff’s vehicle of about $2,000.
The defendants and insurance companies in both of the accidents disputed the nature and extent of the injuries claimed by the plaintiff. More importantly, both insurance companies blamed each other for the plaintiff’s claimed lower back injuries that resulted in a six-level low back surgery. They claimed that the plaintiff’s low back condition and need for surgery was a result of his long standing degenerative arthritis, and the fact he slipped and fell in his bathtub only one month before the first of the two minor car accidents. Mr. Corwin achieved a combined settlement of $350,000 for the plaintiff -- an outstanding recovery, considering the minor nature of the two successive auto accidents, and the fact the plaintiff had fallen only a month before.
