$500,000 Settlement for Couple Who Suffered Foot Injuries
Six-figure settlement secured without a lawsuit
Steve Caya obtained a policy limits settlement of $500,000 for a couple who were injured by an uninsured driver. Car accident injury attorney Steve Caya and his team worked closely with the clients’ treating physicians in order to establish the severity of the foot injuries. The expert reports submitted by these physicians left the insurer no choice but to pay the policy limits. This result was obtained even without the need to file a lawsuit.

How much can I claim for a foot injury?
Foot injury compensation payouts are calculated based on several factors including:
- Nature and severity of the foot injury (a minor foot injury will likely not be worth as much compensation as a foot fracture, broken toe or crushed foot injury)
- Lost wages including future capacity to earn
- Medical bills including treatment & rehabilitation
- Pain and suffering
- Your legal representation
The quality of the personal injury lawyer handling your claim has a direct effect on the amount of compensation offered by the insurance company.
