SMDA partner, Patrick Derkacz, recently recovered $1.2 million dollars on behalf of his seriously injured clients. Mr. Derkacz convinced State Farm to pay this significant settlement the day after taking the deposition of the at-fault driver who offered testimony that he was not responsible for causing this rear end accident. The at-fault driver tried to blame everyone but himself, including the seriously injured driver of the car he struck for not traveling the minimum speed on the freeway. (The freeway traffic was slowing to a stop for a previous accident!) State Farm likely realized that any potential jury would not look kindly upon Defendant’s ridiculous testimony.
This significant recovery should help the elderly couple injured in the crash the economic cushion they need to live their lives as they wish.
