  • State Farm Agrees to Pay Excess Verdict. No Appeal Taken of Jury Verdict.

    Posted By Chaikin, Sherman, Cammarata, Siegel, P.C. || 15-Apr-2013

    State Farm agreed to forego an appeal and pay a $1,934,369 verdict obtained by partner Joseph Cammarata in a January 2013 trial in the D.C Superior Court. The State Farm policy limits were only $100,000. State Farm only offered $23,500- to settle the case before trial. The case involved a young woman who suffered an aggravation of a pre-existing back condition leading to the need for spinal surgery, which she did not have as of the time of trial.

    Her injuries also caused her to suffer with lifetime permanent functional limitations. She had an under-insured motorist policy with Geico with policy limits of $200,000. As a result of the judgment, Geico also agreed to pay its policy limits which will be credited against the amount to be paid by State Farm.
