After noticing the debris, he attempted to move to his left but was unable to due to another vehicle being there.

Wilt v. Allied Property and Casualty Insurance Company (Auto Accident) $655,000
Ms. Wilt was traveling eastbound on Orange Avenue in Rockledge and stopped at a stop sign at US1 waiting for traffic to clear when she was suddenly rear ended by the Defendant. The crash resulted in $206 in damage to the rear of Ms. Wilt’s vehicle. However, severity of the injury to a person cannot always be correlated to damage to a vehicle. Ms. Wilt had no prior medical issues. As a result of the crash, she suffered injuries to her neck and right shoulder, both of which required surgery. The Defendant’s insurance company, GMAC, promptly offered their liability limits of $10,000.00. This was not enough to cover the full extent of Ms. Wilt’s injuries and fortunately she carried uninsured motorist coverage on her own auto insurance policy with Allied Property and Casualty.After receiving an offer of $35,000.00 pre-suit, David Alpizar, filed a lawsuit. After significant discovery was conducted, Alpizar Law was able to reach a settlement against Ms. Wilt’s own insurance company for $655,000.00.
