Below are just a few examples of lawsuits against State Farm we successfully resolved on behalf of our clients since 2003.
$1.5 million (total)
A 22 year-old woman suffered severe back injuries as a passenger in a vehicle operated by her boyfriend. The car was involved in a multi-car collision and the driver was subsequently charged with drunk driving. GJEL used police reports, medical evidence, and depositions to show that the defendant driver’s intoxication was not apparent to the plaintiff. Voluminous medical records obtained by GJEL and testimony from plaintiff’s treating neurosurgeon proved that the three back surgeries which plaintiff had following the accident were the result of the collision, rather than prior injuries. The plaintiff recovered in excess of $1.5 million from both State Farm and Farmers.
This motorcycle vs. auto accident case involved a head-on collision on Sir Francis Drake Boulevard in San Rafael, California in which our client suffered a serious foot injury. The $500,000 settlement represented the limits of the defendant’s auto insurance policy with State Farm, and was part of a total $750,000 settlement. The driver of the automobile contributed $250,000 of her own money to the settlement, in addition to the $500,000 in policy limits paid by her insurance carrier.
In this car accident claim against State Farm, GJEL accident lawyers represented a man who suffered from lower and upper back pain after being struck from the side on Acalanes Road in Lafayette, California. The defendant driver crossed over the center line of the road as he attempted to turn into his driveway and broadsided our client. State Farm paid our client $270,000 to settle the case.
Our client in this case was a driver injured in a Fremont car accident at the intersection of Country Drive and Paseo Padre Parkway. Our client was broadsided by another driver who was speeding and running a red light. The accident caused him to suffer a broken left leg and bladder injury. State Farm ultimately paid our client $100,000 to settle the case.
