No matter how long it takes, we take pride in aggressively representing our clients and ensuring that their interests are protected.
BOCA RATON, FL, August 01, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The law firm of Canter Law announced on Friday that principal attorney Eric Canter prevailed in a recent case involving a 42-year-old woman who sustained severe injuries after another driver made an illegal left turn in front of her vehicle. The jury awarded a $150,000 verdict in the plaintiff's favor.
The accident occurred nearly three years ago when the plaintiff was driving along a main road to pick up her son from school. The defendant tried to turn left from a side street, causing the accident.
Canter said that the insurance company initially offered his client "a meager amount to settle the case." As a result, they decided to take the case to court.
"No matter how long it takes, we take pride in aggressively representing our clients and ensuring that their interests are protected," he said.
A jury in Florida's Broward County awarded the plaintiff a total of $150,048 as compensation for the injuries she sustained as well as future medical costs as a result of the accident.
Canter Law has recovered millions of dollars on behalf of clients injured in car accidents throughout South Florida. The firm advises people hurt in collisions to seek medical care and report accidents as soon as possible in order to protect the integrity of a potential lawsuit.
"The insurance company is unlikely to offer a settlement upfront that covers all of your medical bills and other expenses," Canter said. "That's why it's so important to have records right away of how you've been hurt - and how much you've had to pay."
Although many vehicle accident claims are settled out of court, it's "certainly possible" for plaintiffs to "have to fight for the compensation they deserve in court," Canter added.
"When going to court, it's critical to have the strongest case possible," he said. "Documenting everything is enormously useful in settlement negotiations as well as the courtroom; it can make all the difference when your right to fair compensation is on the line."
