In August 2017, Feldman, Kleidman, Coffey and Sappe LLP’s (FKC&S) 56-year-old client, a resident of Hopewell Junction in Dutchess County, NY, was traveling on Post Road in Fairfield, CT. Another driver disregarded a red traffic light and entered the intersection from North Benson Road, causing a crash. FKC&S’s client, who did not have her seatbelt on, suffered a contusion to her face, neck and shoulder pain and bilateral knee injuries. As a result, she underwent a left knee arthroscopy and a course of physical therapy.
The defendant’s auto insurance carrier paid its full policy limits before a suit was filed. To ensure full compensation for FKC&S’s client, Steven H. Cohen made a claim against the client’s supplementary underinsured motorists (SUM) coverage. After she gave sworn testimony via Zoom at a deposition, that claim was settled for another $95,000.
