this case for a woman seriously injured in a motor vehicle accident
including serious leg injury and a mild traumatic brain injury. The
driver who caused the accident had only $250,000.00 in insurance
coverage but the injury victim had a $1,000,000.00 under insured
motorist policy of her own. The insurance company for the driver who
caused the accident offered to pay the $250,000.00 they had for coverage
but the injury victims own insurance company would only offer to pay
another $50,000.00 for a total recovery of $300,000.00. Because of her
serious injuries the Plaintiff rejected this offer and proceeded to an
arbitration which lasted five days and after the presentation of the
case by Shaheen & Gordon Attorney D. Michael Noonan the arbitration
panel awarded the full $1,000,000.00 as compensation.
