$150,000 settlement – initial offer $9,000
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 $9,000, stating it was the fair value of the case. The adjuster did not properly understand the plaintiff’s injury and the medical treatment. Jason started a lawsuit and began discovery, and the case was settled for $150,000 within six months.
