$100K Settlement for Personal Injury of Former Service Member Injured in Line of Duty as Pentagon Police Officer

July 2018

Pat Hughes represented a former Soldier, then Pentagon police officer, to secure a $100K settlement with his insurance company following a vehicle accident while the officer was traveling from work.  While driving his Pentagon police vehicle and stopped on a beltway off-ramp due to traffic conditions, an underinsured driver slammed into the officer's car at nearly 55mph.  The officer's injuries to his back caused him to undergo regular physical therapy.  Because the driver of the vehicle responsible for the accident was underinsured, Pat sought recovery through the officer's own insurance, and secured a maximum insurance policy payout of $100K as a settlement after filing suit in Maryland state court.
