Kaplan Law Offices, P.C. was entrusted with representing an adult client who was run over by a SUV while he was riding a bicycle on April of 2015.

The problem is that the driver of the SUV fled the scene, never to be found.

Our client had extensive medical problems. He lay in a comatose state for an extended time, and required multiple surgeries to his spine, head, and legs . To this day, our client has multiple screws in his body, and is still experiencing considerable pain, discomfort, and disfigurement.

But where to get any compensation in light of the SUV’s flight from the scene?

Because there was a lack of insurance, our client was turned down by multiple attorneys who did not see any prospect in representing him.

Then our client came to Kaplan Law Offices, P.C.

Our staff first looked to our own client’s vehicle insurance. That’s right, even though our client was on a bicycle, his own vehicle insurance company would cover (to a limited extent) his medical bills, and other damages.

The problem: our client did not own a vehicle, so obviously, there was no vehicle insurance.

So we then looked for homeowner’s insurance or other comprehensive policy into which we could tap to get some coverage for our client.

You guessed it: our client did not own a home, so there was no homeowner’s insurance.

As it turned out, our client still lived with his father. Even though our client was over the age of 18, the fact is that his father’s vehicle insurance company was forced to tender the full policy to our client specifically because our client and the father lived under the same roof.

While our client will never be fully compensated for his extensive and sever injuries, he was, at least, able to get some compensation and help for future medical expenses.

The attorneys and staff at Kaplan Law Offices, P.C. worked diligently to tap into every avenue of recovery, and we are very proud of that.

And most importantly, we are humbled that our client entrusted us to represent him, and gave us a chance despite other law firms turning down his case.
