Automobile Accident

Traumatic Brain Injury

A physician was shoveling snow in his driveway one morning before work when a car being driven by a lawyer slid into him, causing a brain injury. The lawyer's insurance policy provided only $100,000.00 of coverage, but additional coverage through the lawyer's law firm was established by proof that the lawyer was driving from home to court, rather than to his office, and was therefore legally considered to be on the job at the time of the accident.

Automobile Accident

Broken Bones

The case involved a woman who was driving her car across the Washington Avenue Bridge in Minneapolis. She lost control on an ice patch, and struck the bridge rail. She got out of the car to examine the damage, and just as she was re-entering the car, an uninsured vehicle lost control, striking the plaintiff and pinning her between her car and the uninsured vehicle. After recovery of an arbitration award of $775,000.00, plaintiff proceeded to collect additional amounts from the insurance on the vehicle which she was operating, a loaner vehicle from her car dealer. The car dealer's insurance company, Safeco, vigorously disputed the plaintiff's entitlement to benefits, resulting in two appeals (Safeco v. Goldenberg). The plaintiff's claims were ultimately upheld on appeal.

Leg Injury(Multiple Fractures)

This case involved a 40-year-old gentleman that was a pedestrian when he was struck by an automobile at an auto show. His left leg was run over and he suffered multiple fractures.
