Recent Case Results November 2017

Earlier this month, our litigation manager was able to settle a case that was court bound by getting the insurance company to increase their offer. Our client was involved in an accident where the defendant ran a stop sign, t-boned her, and one other person. The insurance company was claiming minimal property damage and they didn’t see her case being worth more than $4,000.00. After our litigation manager got involved and threatened to file suit, the insurance company agreed to raise their offer by $1,500.00. Our client was very pleased with her final offer and her experience with our firm.

Litigation News November 2017

This month in litigation news at Portner & Shure, we have an accident case where our client was rear-ended with such a great impact that it pushed her into the vehicle ahead of her. The accident left our client in immense pain to her neck and a fractured rib. Liability was highly disputed the entire case and no settlement offer was ever made. After our client was through with treatment she had accrued over $17,000.00 in medical expenses. In order to get our client the compensation she deserved from the insurance company, our litigation team filed suit. After we made our court appearance, the trial Judge found the defendant to be at fault and awarded our client with $27,679.71. Our client was very satisfied with her result, especially since no offer was made, and appreciated the dedication and hard work from her paralegal and attorney.

What Clients are Saying September 2017

Portner & Shure was amazing with dealing with my auto case. My wife and I were in a car accident and they came highly recommended. We worked with Christine Airey and she was able to coordinate all of the necessary information while we focused on getting better. She kept us updated with all communication and made the process of settlement a breeze. Christine showed outstanding sensitivity and care during our time of distress and helped us to get past an unfortunate event. I would recommend Portner & Shure to any and everybody who has any legal needs.
