Aida Pelaez v. Geico Insurance Company – Settlement for $1,000,000.00

Auto Accident – Settlement for $1,000,000.00, July 2004
Mrs. Aida Pelaez, an 83-year-old passenger of a vehicle that was turning left on a green light at an intersection in Boca Raton, Florida, was seriously injured when a vehicle ran a red light at that intersection and collided with the vehicle occupied by Mrs. Pelaez. She suffered a perforated colon requiring emergency surgery; a pulmonary embolism (blood clot in the lungs) and a left pneumothorax (air and gas between lungs and chest wall), both requiring surgery. She also had a fractured pelvis and lumbar spine requiring a hospital stay of approximately two months. After thorough preparation by Zimmerman & Frachtman, the case settled for $1,000,000.00, which represented the insurance maximum on the case.
