Auto Accident / Negligent Road Design yields $10 Million Result

Recently, Leesfield Scolaro concluded a motor vehicle case turning $50,000 coverage into a $10,500,000 settlement. The defendant vehicle went out of control on a Florida interstate crossing four lanes and colliding with our client’s vehicle, causing death and injuries. Our firm’s in-depth investigation and thinking “out of the box” found numerous violations on behalf of the road contractor who allowed the highway and shoulder to remain uneven, contributing to this tragedy. Although the defendant driver purchased only $50,000 in insurance coverage, the total settlement was $10,500,000 when the road construction defendant, under-insured and bad faith claims were litigated.
