In September of 2011, Jacqueline Smith suffered injuries to her lower back when a truck violated her right-of-way and T-boned her vehicle. The truck driver was underinsured, so Mrs. Smith filed a claim for her injuries through her underinsured motorist coverage with 21st Century Insurance Company. 21st Century Ins. Co. denied the collision caused all the injuries Mrs. Smith was claiming and tried to prove she was also negligent in the crash. Coker Law’s attorneys knew their client was in the right, so they fought 21st Century Ins. Co. in an intense four-day trial. The jury agreed with Coker Law and awarded Mrs. Smith more than $940,000 for medical expenses and pain and . Because of 21st Century Ins. Co.’s refusal to settle the case when given the chance, Coker Law is also going after 21st Century Ins. Co. for attorney fees and costs.
