Motor Vehicle Accident

We represented a father and daughter who were seriously injured in a car accident on New Year’s Day in Rockville, Maryland, when they were struck head on by a priest returning to his church from a hospital visit. The daughter suffered a fractured back and internal organ injuries that caused her to be hospitalized for over a month. The father’s injuries were less severe. Our client’s original attorney recommended that our clients settle the daughter’s case for the priest’s automobile insurance policy limits of $100,000. However, once retained, we pursued a case against the priest’s parish, arguing that the priest was acting in the scope of his employment at the time of the accident. We successfully opposed the church’s motion to dismiss the case, and were able to settle her case for $475,000. We also settled the father’s case for $29,000.
