On a cool November afternoon, our client was walking her dog on the side of a road when a car left the roadway far enough for their side view mirror to strike her and knock her to the ground.  The car drove off.   Our client never saw it coming.  While the dog was not hurt, our client was knocked out.  When she came to, she was not sure what happened and crawled to a nearby house.  An ambulance was called and she spent 14 days in the hospital.  The reckless, distracted driver thought she may have hit something and after she arrived at her location, she noticed some damage to her rear view mirror.   Fortunately, she called the police and confessed.  Our 53-year-old client suffered a significant but to her head, broken bones in her back and a traumatic brain injury (TBI).  After collecting the limited amount of available insurance from the car that hit her, we filed an underinsurance claim against our clients own insurance company.  Fortunately, she had purchased the right to pursue compensation from her own car insurance if the car that caused her injury had less insurance than her.   Partners Elyssa Fried-DeRosa and Ken Fromson handled the case and obtained a total settlement of $850,000
