One of my most recent and more memorable cases that I’ve handled, car wreck cases was we actually just got it resolved about a month ago for $1.3 million. It was a situation where the lady first called, she told me it was a hit run. She wasn’t sure who ran into her and fled the scene but she had this napkin. So she came and I met with her and she brings this napkin and scribbled on it that I barely could read a license plate. And so we were able to run that through some of our databases, track down the owner of the vehicle as well as the driver of the vehicle. It turned out it was a pretty wealthy man here in town who owns his own business.

He’d been out drinking and then was on his way to visit on girlfriend, which his other girlfriend she didn’t he was going to visit that girlfriend. So fortunately, the guy who followed and got the license plate was a Boy Scout. He was a scoutmaster and had been a scoutmaster for over 20 years and he was on his way to his very last scout meeting when he saw this wreck and saw the guy flee the scene and so he decided as he described to me well, that’s what we as scouts do. But had he not gotten that man’s license plate my client, likely, would have never been able to go forward with a claim and probably would have been limited to $30,000.00 recovery. Fortunately, for her, he helped her and we were able to work hard. It took about a year but we were able to get her $1.3 million.
