Coe Baxter, PGH associate, recently settled a lawsuit involving acar accident for $90,000.00.  The adverse driver’s insurance company initially offered Coe’s client only $1,800.00 to settle the case.  After hiring Coe and filing suit that offer was raised to $28,937.50.  The complaint filed by Coe claimed negligence, wantonness and negligent and/or wanton entrustment.  Coe also added a claim against his client’s own insurer for underinsured motorist benefits.  Coe’s client was traveling east on 15th Street in Tuscaloosa, Alabama when the adverse driver merged into Coe’s client’s lane of travel, causing the collision.  After paper discovery, the taking of depositions and a mediation, Coe was able to settle the case for $90,000.00.  Coe was pleased with the result and thankful that he could help his client resolve his case.  If you or a loved one has been injured in a car wreck, call Coe or any of the other Alabama car accident lawyers at Prince Glover Hayes for a free consultation.
