Las Vegas car accident lawyer, Donald C. Kudler, of the law firm Cap & Kudler, has settled a case on behalf of his client who was injured in a car accident caused by two other drivers. Our client was traveling west Charleston Blvd. Our client noticed that a driver in front of him was on the phone and had not noticed that the light at Grand Central Parkway had changed form red to green. Our client and another car went around that car. Our client came to a stop for the red light at Martin Luther King Blvd. when he was hit from behind twice. First by the car that followed him around the stopped car, then again by that car as a result of it being hit by the car whose driver was on the phone.
Our client was seen at the Southern Hills Hospital (where he was seen by doctors employed at Fremont Medical Emergency) for injuries to his Lower Back, Mid-Back, Neck, and Left Knee caused by the car accident. He was next seen by Dr. Stephen Fair, D.C. at Downtown Neck and Back Clinic for the injuries caused by the negligent drivers.
Filing a Claim with 2 Insurance Carriers
Since there were two negligent adverse drivers, our office made claims with both of their insurance carriers. The insurers for both drivers initially denied liability blaming the accident on the other driver. Over time, we were able to convince them that the accident was caused by their insureds and that our client was not at fault in any way. Once this was done, we were able to settle the case obtaining a settlement for our insured with each driver accepting 50% of the fault for causing the personal injury car accident.
Donald Kudler, says “We had to work hard to show the insurers that each of their insureds was responsible for causing this car accident. It was clear from the beginning that our client was following the law and driving safely. Unfortunately, two other drivers, one who was on the phone, were not paying enough attention to avoid causing this car accident. We hope that we could put an end to distracted driving. If we could, a major portion of the accidents could be avoided. I would be happy to discuss this important issue at Las Vegas Schools or other organizations wanting to help end this danger.”
