Workers Compensation and Auto Accident Settled for $75,000
On March 17, 2002, a middle-aged man, an employee of Raytheon Technical Services Corporation, was the victim of an automobile collision while on-the-job and in the scope of his employment. He sustained severe bodily injuries and corresponding damages including but not limited displaced right posterior column fracture of the acetabulum’s right hip (surgery wasn’t obtained). Sokoloff & Weinstein, P.A., Attorneys at Law, were able to garner the underlying $50,000.00 bodily injury coverage limit from GMAC, while also obtaining the secondary $25,000.00 coverage limit from Florida Farm Bureau, his own Underinsured Motorist (UIM) insurer. The total settlement of $75,000.00 was made up of all of 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 value in six figures.
