LDM attorney Mike Storey recently won a defense judgement in a jury trial for an underinsured motorist claim. The plaintiff claimed injuries related to a motor vehicle accident and had already received a total of $105,000.00 in liability payments from the other driver’s insurance policy. At trial, plaintiff sought a total recovery of $289,000.00 for her alleged injuries. After a 3-day trial in the District Court of Douglas County, where liability was admitted and three medical experts were presented, the jury concluded that plaintiff’s damages from the accident totaled $90,000.00. Since plaintiff had already received $105,000.00 for the accident, she was not entitled to any recovery under the UIM policy and judgment was entered by the district court in favor of the insurance company.
