Prince Glover Hayes Associate Coe Baxter Settles Underinsured Motorist Claim

Coe Baxter recently settled a client’s claim for underinsured motorist benefits.   Coe settled the claim against the adverse driver in July 2021 for $50,000 ( the policy limits) but that amount did not adequately compensate his client so Coe pursued a claim against his client’s insurer for benefits due pursuant to underinsured motorist coverage.  Coe’s client suffered injuries to his arm and elbow necessitating an arm cast, injections, and physical therapy. Coe’s client also lost wages and had other out of pocket expenses.  After negotiating with his client’s underinsured motorist carrier, the claim was settled for an additional $10,000.  Liability was clear in this case.  The adverse driver ran a traffic signal and attempted a left turn across traffic colliding with Coe’s client.   The wreck was recorded on a Tuscaloosa County Deputy’s dash camera.  This case is another example of how important it is to purchase uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage from your insurance provider.
