$100k Personal Injury Award
Military family struck by DUI driver. Spouse of the military member suffered no physical injuries, but experienced extreme anxiety following the collision. Defendant's insurance company offered the spouse an unreasonably low offer to settle due to lack of medical bills and physical injuries. Mike Lyons got involved just weeks before the statute of limitations was to expire and immediately filed a lawsuit. Mike demanded the full $100,000 available under the insurance company's policy and never backed down. After Mike gave an ultimatum that all settlement discussions would cease unless accepted by a set deadline, the insurance company backed down and agreed to payout its full policy limit of $100,000. Mike convinced the insurance company he could recovery much more from a jury despite the absence of medical bills and visible injuries.
