Las Vegas personal injury lawyer, Donald Kudler, of the law firm Cap & Kudler, has settled a motor vehicle accident, which involved a hit-and-run driver. Donald Kudler represented the driver that was hit from behind. The client suffered neck and back injuries as a result of the accident.
Our client was stopped at a red light when the other driver ran into the back of his SUV resulting in moderate damage to both vehicles. The adverse driver then fled the scene of the accident without exchanging insurance information. By some miracle, our client found the other driver’s truck later that morning and was able to get his full license plate number allowing us to proceed against him.
The client was treated by Richard Cestowski, D.O., for the injuries caused by the accident. Dr. Cestkowski referred him to Daniel M. Antonio of Performance Physical Therapy for further care. Combined the medical providers were able to help our client recover from the injuries caused by the hit-and-run driver.
Attempting to recover damages
As usual, our first attempt to recover compensation for our client’s injuries were with the other driver’s insurance company. The company’s adjuster felt that our client was not injured or not injured as bad as he claimed he was and refused to pay the insured’s $15,000.00 policy limits for the personal injuries caused by their insured’s negligence forcing us to file a lawsuit on our client’s behalf. After a few months pursuing the Defendant through litigation in the Court Annexed Arbitration Program, we were finally able to get the insurer to pay the policy limits to our client to compensate him for the injuries caused by the personal injury accident.
According to Nevada personal injury attorney Donald Kudler “Hit and Run Accidents are all too common and leave many victims injured, distraught and without a source to compensate them for the personal injuries and property damage caused by the accident. I wanted to make sure that the client was paid adequately for his pain and suffering. I pushed and pushed until my client got a fair settlement..”
