Jury Verdict in Automobile Accident Case

January 2008

Mike Tanner represented the plaintiff who suffered injury to both of her knees when her vehicle was struck head-on by another motorist who was driving under the influence. GEICO was the underinsured motorist carrier for his client. After settling with the liability insurance carrier for the other driver for the policy limits, his client turned down GEICO’s settlement offer of $100,000. The case was tried against GEICO in the Circuit Court of Colbert County, and the jury returned a verdict on January 16, 2008, in favor of his client for $275,000.
