John L’s Story

John L’s case became very, very complicated. He was involved in a hit-and-run accident around 2:00 a.m. on a highway with no lights and no witnesses. John had a $25,000 UIM policy. In California, there is a requirement that there be contact between the two vehicles, actual physical contact in a hit-and-run scenario, before a person can recover against their UIM policy. The police report did not indicate that there was contact between John’s motorcycle and the hit-and-run vehicle. However, our client in his statement on the police report said that there was contact–that a guy had hit him from behind and then he took off. The UIM adjuster was denying the claim saying there was no contact and that they had inspected the motorcycle and their inspection concluded that there was no contact.

Another example that WE CARE…

We litigated Michael J’s case successfully for a decent recovery. However, before the case closed a local County hospital operated by the City attempted to collect from our client the portion of his bill that had not been paid by his insurance company. This is against California code in that balance billing in this particular instance is not correct or allowed. However, both the City, after talking to their attorneys, and the County, disagreed with the case law and ended up filing a lawsuit against our client regardless.
