Below are just a few examples of personal injury lawsuits against Allstate Insurance we successfully resolved on behalf of our clients since 2003.
Our attorneys represented a young client who was a passenger in a friend’s car that veered into an obstruction on a neighbor’s lawn. During the auto accident, the car’s airbag deployed and our client suffered an injury to her eye. Although the defendants claimed our client’s injury resulted from a defective airbag and argued that the driver had performed an evasive maneuver to avoid hitting a dog, the injury attorneys at GJEL established that there was nothing defective about the airbag, and that the injury occurred as a result of negligence and driving at an excessive speed. Allstate ultimately paid $2,100,000 to settle the case.
In this auto vs. pedestrian accident, our client was a 70-year-old Berkeley man who suffered a chest injury when he was struck by a car in a crosswalk. He also experienced back pain in the months following the accident. Accident attorney Jim Larsen ultimately settled the case with Allstate for $250,000.
Our client in this car accident case was a passenger in a car on Diablo road in Danville. The driver of the car lost control of the vehicle and slammed into a telephone pole, causing our client to suffer a broken leg and a concussion. Allstate paid $300,000 to settle this case.
GJEL attorneys recovered $100,000 from Allstate in this case for a 70-year-old Berkeley driver who suffered an arm injury in a car accident.
