1.35 Million Verdict Car Accident Case

Hoskins, Turco, Lloyd & Lloyd Secures $1.35 Million Verdict for Car Accident Victim in One of the First Jury Trials Since COVID – Why Your Lawyer Matters!

The Law Firm of Hoskins, Turco, Lloyd & Lloyd in partnership with Attorney Brad Jefferson recently represented a client who was seriously injured in a car accident. Attorneys Steve and Taylor Hoskins, Brad Jefferson, and our litigation team worked tirelessly for over three years gathering information and building a winning case for our client. The case was taken to court for one of the first jury trials since the COVID pandemic halted courtroom proceedings. Our experienced trial lawyers effectively argued on behalf of our client, and she was awarded over $1.35 million in damages for her personal injuries.

The verdict in this case was over three times higher than any settlement offer from the defendant

If you’re wondering if having an attorney or who you choose to represent you matters, the proof is in this verdict. Our client was seriously injured in a car accident in St. Lucie County. During settlement negotiations to compensate for our client’s injuries and damages, the at-fault driver’s insurance company tried to place partial blame on our client to evade paying a full and fair amount.

Attorneys Steve and Taylor Hoskins and Brad Jefferson listened to and believed our client and hired a team of investigators and accident experts to investigate and reconstruct the accident. The team was able to prove that our client was not at-fault. When the defendant’s insurance company once again tried to settle the case for one-third of what the client deserved, our litigation team rejected the offer and vowed to take the case to trial.

In August 2021, the case was presented before a jury trial in St. Lucie County. Attorneys Steve and Taylor Hoskins, Brad Jefferson, and our litigation team delivered a strong argument and the jurors found that our client was indeed not at-fault and awarded her a settlement over $1.35 million.

Having an attorney who truly hears you and is passionate about helping you get justice can make all the difference in the world.
