SAN FRANCISCO, Calif./ACCESSWIRE/July 27, 2022/ Teresa Li, personal injury lawyer, founder of the Law Offices of Teresa Li, PCannounced today that she won $500,000 for her client who was tricked.
According to court documents, Li’s client, a 54-year-old woman, suffered a concussion and annular tears to her cervical (neck) and lumbar (lower back) discs after being struck on the passenger side when another driver changed lanes inappropriately. Alma Street near the Caltrain station in Palo Alto, CA on July 17, 2018.
Li’s client was on her way home after dropping her daughter off at the Caltrain station. After the impact, Li’s client refused an ambulance and went to see a chiropractor the same day for her injuries. Later, she went to the emergency room for neck pain. His attending physician diagnosed him with a sprained neck and a concussion. At the time of the collision, Li’s client was a part-time administrative assistant and real estate agent. Due to her injuries, she had to quit her job in real estate and became a full-time administrative assistant to minimize her lost wages.
The other driver and Li’s client are both members of the Travelers Commercial Insurance Company. On January 8, 2020, Li’s client filed a lawsuit in Santa Clara Superior Court (Case No. 20CV361494). The case reached settlement of the $100,000 policy limit on July 20, 2020 with the other driver’s insurance. Li’s client then filed for arbitration against her own insurance company for underinsured motorist coverage that carries another policy limit of $400,000.
Travelers disputed that Li’s client suffered a concussion and annular tears in her cervical and lumbar discs, but less than 2 weeks before arbitration for the underinsured motorist’s claim, Travelers submitted the second policy limit of $400,000 on July 20, 2022.
“I’m glad Travelers has finally stepped up and fulfilled its contractual obligation to pay its own insured for the bodily injuries she suffered. That’s what insurance is for,” said Teresa Li.
