PA Car Accident Recoveries and Settlements
Ostroff Injury Law has obtained millions of dollars for families of PA car accident victims for over 20 years. We have been helping victims of serious accidents across Pennsylvania for over 20 years.
Here are some examples of our recoveries:
$5.7 million to a woman from Bradford County, PA who suffered facial and brain injuries when her car collided with the side of a truck. Though the police found her at fault originally, Jon proved that the driver of the truck she struck was actually responsible for the collision and Jon’s client received an award that gave her financial security for the rest of her life.
$3.1 million for a mother and daughter injured in a high-speed collision near Pittsburgh, PA. Both mother and daughter suffered from leg and hip injuries. The van driver that collided with Jon’s clients’ car originally blamed a car that supposedly fled the scene, but Jon found other witnesses and proved that there was no such vehicle and the van was to blame. Jon settled the mother’s claim in less than a year and the daughter’s claim a short time later.
$1.95 million settlement reached for a man injured at a traffic intersection when his car struck a van that ran a stop sign. Jon Ostroff’s client sustained injuries that worsened over time and required two surgeries, but the insurance companies medical experts disputed the medical diagnosis, the treatment, and the claim that the collision caused serious injuries. During mediation with a retired judge, Jon proved his client’s medical claims and showed that the van driver was violating his employer’s safety policies when he caused the accident. Jon settled this case nearly 3 months before it was scheduled to go to trial.
$1.3 million settlement to a man who severely injured his ankle after being hit in his car by a drunk driver near Scranton, PA. Even though the drunk driver only had a $500,000 insurance policy, Jon won an award for his client that was almost three times that amount.
