Insurance bad faith lawsuit results in $12 million…  

Recently, a claimant was awarded $12 million for insurance bad faith on the part of Progressive Insurance.The lawsuit involved a driver who was insured with Progressive and was the victim of a rollover accident a few years ago.  A passenger in the vehicle was killed in the accident and 5 others incurred serious injuries.Initially, a judge in New Mexico dismissed the bad faith denial of insurance coverage claim against Progressive because the driver's insurance coverage was technically expired at the time of the accident, according to the wording of the driver's insurance policy.However, the case was appealed and the Court of Appeals found evidence beyond the language of the driver's policy in conversations with insurance agents and notices from the insurance provider that the policy was still in place at the time of the accident.Contact the Denver insurance bad faith lawyers of Hull & Zimmerman, P.C. at (303) 423-1770, if an insurance provider is not upholding its commitments to you or someone you know.

Cerebral palsy lawsuit ends in $144 million verdic…  

Last month, a birth injury lawsuit in Michigan resulted in one of the largest verdicts for a case involving cerebral palsy in the history of the U.S.The lawsuit was filed against Beaumont Hospital and a doctor at the hospital.  In the case heard in Oakland County Circuit Court, the mother of a 15-year old girl with cerebral palsy argued that her daughter developed the condition as a result of brain damage caused by the hospital's failure to call for a C-section delivery.When the girl was born, she weighed 10 pounds and 12 ounces.  The suit claimed that the doctor should have realized that a C-section was necessary due to the child's large size.  Furthermore, the doctor's failure to call for a C-section caused the child to suffer a fracture to her clavicle, multiple hemorrhages, and permanent brain damage.The jury found the hospital negligent and issued a $144 million verdict.  The award will allow the girl's family to pay for her round-the-clock care for about 77 years.If your child was injured before, during, or shortly after their delivery, contact the Denver birth injury attorneys of Hull & Zimmerman, P.C. at 866-385-3505 to discuss your case with one of our lawyers and learn more about your rights.
