    • Partners Drew Beal and Nicholas Smith successfully negotiated a significant $1 million settlement (April 26, 2019) - Representative Cases | Individual Litigation

      Partners Drew Beal and Nicholas Smith successfully negotiated a significant $1 million settlement immediately before trial on behalf of their client in a personal injury case with hotly contested coverage questions regarding an umbrella policy of insurance.

      In this case, Buckley Beal represented a woman who suffered permanent injuries and multiple broken bones after a nasty head-on car collision. Buckley Beal’s position was that the accident was caused by the at-fault driver and car’s owner who had negligently entrusted the vehicle to the driver after they spent the evening drinking and smoking marijuana. The Defendants vehemently disputed the key facts.
