Case Results

$681,606.20 (Underinsured Motorist)

Net Underinsured Motorist Arbitration Award. In May 2015 Attorney Kohn, along with attorney Suzanne Skolnick, represented a 60 year old man in an underinsured motorist claim against Truck Insurance Exchange (Farmers Insurance). The claimant was injured in a November, 2010 rear-end collision that occurred while he was in the course and scope of his employment as a school district security officer. He sustained back, neck and shoulder injuries and had undergone 4 ½ years of treatment, including neck and back epidural injections and 2 lumbar radiofrequency ablation procedures by the time the matter reached arbitration. The claim against the underinsured motorist settled for the $15,000 minimal policy limit. After the worker's compensation case was resolved, the case was mediated unsuccessfully with Farmers offering only $30,000. The case then proceeded to arbitration before retired Judge Herbert Hoffman. Less than one week before the hearing, Farmers increased its offer to $175,000. Judge Hoffman determined total damages in the amount of $681,606.20, which included the following items: past economic damages of $156,606.20; future medical expenses of $75,000; past non-economic damages of $150,000; future non-economic damages of $250,000 and loss of consortium damages for the client's wife of $50,000. After reduction for the worker's compensation benefits and the third party recovery, Judge Hoffman's net award totaled $681,606.20.
