$135,000 settlement after mediation – initial offer $2,000

Attorney Jason Tremont handled a case that showed how far off the insurance company adjusters were to the actual value of the cases. This misevaluation may not be typical; however, it exemplifies that you need to look at every detail of a case and not take the first offer from any insurance company. Adjuster offered just $2,000. The adjuster said that’s the most that he would pay because of the age of the plaintiff (was over 70 years old). Jason started a lawsuit and began discovery, and the matter settled at a mediation for $135,000.
