Vehicle Collisions Where Fault Was Driving Without Headlights
Posted on Saturday, February 25th, 2017 at 4:42 pm
When a defendant’s insurer denies a claim a personal injury attorney is often required to obtain justice for the injured party. This was the case for Betty McManus, who was seriously injured on Windward Parkway in Alpharetta, Georgia when she turned left in front of Defendant’s oncoming vehicle. The Defendant driver admitted to driving without her headlights activated. Defendant’s insurer, a major carrier, denied Mrs. McManus’ claim because it contended that Mrs. McManus should have seen Defendant’s car because the road was well lit.
Jonathan R. Brockman, P.C. filed suit, took depositions of the parties, and located an independent witness that was on the scene shortly after the wreck. Our hard work made the insurance carrier reconsider its denial.
The case was successfully resolved at mediation by Greg Parent of Miles Mediation. Mrs. McManus was so satisfied with her representation that she presented Jon with a beautiful horse statue as a token of her appreciation. Many thanks Betty! Many thanks also to Greg Parent for his skillful work at mediation.
