We were able to obtain a policy limits settlement for a Fairfax County Police Officer who was struck by a drunk driver while on duty. The officer suffered from soft tissue injuries and was treated by doctors for approximately six weeks before he was able to return to duty. His medical bills were about $1,600. He also had a claim for lost wages and lost overtime opportunities in the amount of $15,000.
The case settled with the drunk driver’s insurance company for his $25,000 policy limits and our client’s auto insurance company also paid their $25,000 policy limits, for a total settlement of $50,000.
