On August 10th, 2011, a middle-aged woman was the victim of a rear-end automobile collision while on-the-job and in the scope of her employment. She sustained a single protruded/herniated disc with a surgical recommendation (surgery wasn’t obtained). Sokoloff & Weinstein, P.A., Attorneys at Law, were able to garner the underlying $10,000.00 bodily injury coverage limit from Allstate, while also obtaining a secondary $30,000.00 settlement from USAA, her own Underinsured Motorist (UIM) insurer.
Overall a $40,000.00 settlement from the available insurance coverage. As this was primarily a worker’s compensation case, Sokoloff & Weinstein, P.A. had some of its affiliated attorneys handle the plaintiff’s worker’s compensation matter on behalf of the injured worker. Concurrently with the independent tort case for bodily injury and underinsured motorist claim, Sokoloff & Weinstein’s affiliated attorneys were able to garner an additional worker’s compensation settlement of $15,000.00 for our client, bringing the total settlement to $55,000.
