$1,000,000.00 (1 Million Dollars) – Roofer steps on nail
Insurance company pays more than policy limits.
Our client stepped on a nail during a construction job. Weeks later due to an unknown diabetic condition, the wound became infected and ultimately resulted in the amputation of his foot. We pursued this against the homeowner proving she was liable for the injury because of her use of an unlicensed contractor, deeming the homeowner the de facto employer of the negligent co worker. Allstate insurance rejected our offer to settle for their insureds $300,000 policy. The case was settled of the first day of trial for 1 million dollars which was paid by Allstate Insurance.
