Keys to the Case:
Plaintiff filed a first-party action against our insurance company following a motor vehicle accident that occurred on July 27, 2014. Plaintiff alleged injuries to his neck and back as a result of the accident. He claimed his injuries necessitated attendant care and household services for over 18 months after the accident. He also claimed that he could not return to work as a server or complete his education at a local community college.
Payroll records from Plaintiff’s employer showed him working as a server despite his claim that he could not do so. In addition, Plaintiff’s education records showed that he continued his coursework despite his testimony to the contrary. In addition, Plaintiff claimed attendant care on days he worked as a server.
Plaintiff’s counsel reduced their demand as trial approached and ultimately dismissed their case voluntarily. Defendant’s offer of settlement never exceeded $0.00.
