Daniel concluded a claim following a road traffic accident in California, USA where a father and son were injured in a taxi that was transporting them from the airport.

This was a multi-vehicle accident. One needs to be aware that motor policies have a limited indemnity in the USA, and this often results in a claim being settled at a figure lower than the true value of a claim.

On this occasion there were several policies that could be claimed against. Both client suffered serious whiplash type injuries, with the younger client also suffering a couple of fractures to his ankle leaving long term consequences.

The claim settled for $700,000 to include a recovery of the medical expenses and repatriation costs.
