On February 18, 2015, Kalka & Baer, LLC's client was hit head on
by a driver who ran a red light. Below is a photo of the damage to her car.
Doctors at the emergency room told her that nothing was broken; however,
she experienced extreme pain in her right foot when trying to walk. Our
client did not have health insurance. Nevertheless, Kalka & Baer helped
her see one of the top orthopedic groups in the state. Her orthopedic
doctor correctly diagnosed a displaced fracture of her right angle and
she had surgery on March 17, 2015. She is doing much better now.
After the client completed post-surgery physical therapy,
Kalka & Baer obtained a $225,000.00 settlement from the at-fault driver's insurance company.
The person who hit the woman Kalka & Baer represented had a minimum
limits policy of $25,000.00; however, Kalka & Baer found and additional
$275,000.00 available in Underinsured Motorist coverage, including $25,000.00
from a motorcycle policy in which the client was an additional insured.
Following intensive settlement discussions with Progressive, Kalka &
Baer was able to maximize the award given to their client.
