    Car Accident Verdict

    Verdict for a child who sustained a severe traumatic brain injury in an automobile accident. This is believed to be the largest car accident verdict ever in Mecklenburg County Superior Court. Both defendants were represented by experienced insurance defense counsel. At a court-ordered mediation settlement conference, State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance had refused to make any settlement offer whatsoever to the injured child, denied obligation to pay any amount and then made a verbal promise to its insured that it would pay any verdict that was returned in the case.

    After the verdict, State Farm filed an appeal on behalf of its insured but failed to post an appeal bond. A second lawsuit was then filed against State Farm to force the insurance company to pay the entire amount of the verdict. The case was settled shortly after the second case was filed for $11,248,111.
