Settlement for workplace accident totaled $350,000.
Mitchel Ashley was able to hold two insurance companies who claimed they had no liability and who disclaimed coverage saying the incident wasn’t one they covered with their policies. Even though Mitchel had no guarantee of being able to get any insurance coverage for his injured client, he proceeded to trial.
All along Mitchel told the insurance companies they were wrong and their policies did cover this incident. Just as the trial commenced the two companies decided to offer Mitchel’s injured client money for his injuries rather then test their beliefs. Many attorneys would not take case when there is no insurance coverage. Mitchel’s belief that he could eventually get to the insurance policies was not only right but helped an injured person get much needed compensation.
