Passenger In IA Car Accident Receives Significant Settlement

Our client was a passenger in a vehicle driven by a friend.  Our client sustained serious and significant injuries as a result of the Iowa auto accident.  Unfortunately, there was only $100,000 in coverage by the driver on his vehicle.  The client also had available $25,000 in underinsured motorist coverage.  The Pothitakis Law Firm, P.C. pursued and obtained the entire policy limits.  The biggest issue in the case was the fact that the health insurance carrier requested that all of the medical expenses they paid (over $100,000) be reimbursed to them pursuant to their right of subrogation.  The Pothitakis Law Firm, P.C. negotiated a significant and substantial reduction in the lien claimed by Blue Cross Blue Shield to ensure that a majority of the settlement was returned to the client.
