We represented Nestor Saroza, a young man from New Jersey who was involved in a rear-end crash in Miami. The damage to Nestor’s car was minimal. Because Nestor was hit by a Florida driver who had no insurance, Nestor had to make a claim against his insurance company, GEICO, for uninsured motorist benefits. Prior to filing a lawsuit, we demanded that GEICO pay Nestor the full $100,000 insurance policy limits for his low back herniated disc. GEICO offered $4,000 – less than Nestor’s medical bills. We filed a Civil Remedy Notice with the Florida Department of Insurance for GEICO’s mistreatment of Nestor and refusal to reasonably settle. We later filed a lawsuit against GEICO in Miami. GEICO fought the case and the facts from every angle and never offered more than $5,000. At trial, GEICO told the jury that Nestor was a liar, wasn’t injured, and didn’t need any medical treatment. GEICO relied on the testimony of well-known insurance company defense doctors who always say that people like Nestor are liars and aren’t hurt. After a two-day trial, our jury returned a verdict of $169,020.44. Following post-trial motions, the Court entered an order entitling us to attorney’s fees and costs for GEICO’s rejection of our reasonable settlement offers, which were well below the insurance policy limits. After receiving our bills for attorney’s fees and costs, GEICO agreed to pay Nestor $250,000 to avoid further litigation
We represented a woman that was hit by an underinsured motorist and suffered a torn meniscus that required surgery. The driver that caused the crash was underinsured – she only had $10,000 of insurance to pay for our client’s injuries. Despite clear evidence to support our client's claim, the insurance company refused to pay the $10,000 policy limits in a timely manner. We filed a lawsuit and prepared the case for trial. After years of litigation, the case settled for $325,000 the week before trial when the insurance company acknowledged that it acted in bad faith.
