Thomas Scolaro recovers 50 times the insurance policy limits for woman injured in car accident

Brain Damaged woman in Car Accident recovers 50 times the Insurance Policy LimitsThomas Scolaro recovers 50 times the insurance policy limits for a woman injured in car accident

Jane Doe was on her way to pick her son up at school when a teen-age driver ran a stop sign and crashed into the driver side of her vehicle. The impact crushed the drivers side of the car and resulted in catastrophic injuries including severe brain damage. Without insurance of their own or any money to pay for medical care, her husband assumed 24 hour care of his wife. Tragically, the defendant only possessed $10,000.00 in insurance coverage for the accident.

Through hard work and tenacity, Thomas Scolaro was able to argue that the defendant's insurance company had acted in bad faith in failing to timely and properly tender the $10,000.00 in coverage. As a result, Mr. Scolaro secured a $500,000.00 settlement for this family. This result will provide the family with greatly needed help and ease some of the enormous financial burdens created by this reckless teenager.

I have known Ira for several decades and without a doubt he represents the best of the profession- a never ending commitment to his clients and a perpetual desire for learning and sharing his expertise with his colleagues. Richard
I found, and still find, that Ira’s firm will evaluate the case fairly and provide the client with a reasonably expectation of the process involved and will avoid giving false hope where there is none. Also Ira’s firm consistently keeps in constant touch with the client as well as referring attorneys so each knows the progress of a case. Finally I can tell you that if I personally were injured, Ira Leesfield is the first person I would call. Michael Browning
