Casandra Van Zandt Fryar v. Allstate County Mutual Insurance Company
Court: County Court at Law #2, Gregg County, Texas
Cause No.: 2012-952-CCL2
Trial Date: October 13-14, 2014
Summary: Plaintiff was involved in an auto accident on April 9, 2011. Plaintiff was traveling in the outside lane on Highway 259 near Kilgore, Texas, when the alleged at-fault driver pulled out of a gas station, colliding with the front-passenger side of Plaintiff’s vehicle. Plaintiff was in a 2004 Envoy that had $7,000 in damage as a result of the accident.
The alleged injuries were back and neck pain, along with a prolapsed bladder from seatbelt trauma.
The at-fault driver’s carrier settled his case for $30,000.00, and we had an additional offset of $2,500.00 for PIP, so we had a total offset of $32,500.00.
Case Type: Personal Injury
Economic damages: $24,285.89
Last demand: $30,000.00 (the amount of the UIM policy)
Evaluated Amount: $35,000.00 (The $32,5000.00 offset plus $2,500.00 in money from UIM)
Verdict: $22,000.00 (which was $10,500.00 less than the offset, so no liability for carrier)
