From “It’s your fault” to “Here is our policy limit”

John Pinzelik recently resolved a case for a cab driver from Somalia. He was driving his taxi at 2:00 a.m. when a drunk driver going the wrong way on a one way street pulled out in front of him causing him injuries and damages to his taxi. Initially he was told by the insurance company for the drunk-driver that the accident was his fault. John took on his case and, eventually, persuaded the insurance company to pay the cab driver the drunk driver’s insurance policy limits. While we cannot be sure, our client’s foreign- sounding name likely played a part in the insurance company’s handling of his case. We were glad we could help him out.
