B.F. was a teenager without options when she first spoke to Andrew. B.F. had suffered a traumatic brain injury here in DeKalb County. B.F. was taken to Grady Hospital where she slipped into a coma and awoke in Atlanta’s Shepherd Center (link site) where she endured inpatient rehabilitation for months. Upon leaving the Shepherd Center, B.F. had to deal with the DeKalb County Police Department’s error filled investigation that said she was the driver of the car and it was B.F. that caused the car to wreck and injured her brain.
Immediately upon hiring Andrew R. Lynch, P.C., an investigation was done that proved B.F. was not the driver, but another young woman who lived in Decatur, Georgia. Andrew presented his case to the only insurance company involved, requesting all of the $25,000.00 insurance policy for B.F.’s extensive injuries. The insurance company failed to meet Andrew’s demand.
A lawsuit was immediately filed in DeKalb County State Court. After the court process concluded, the insurance company had no choice but to admit that B.F. was not the driver and they had acted in bad faith (meaning they should have paid B.F. the $25,000.00). B.F. received a $300,000.00 settlement. B.F. used this money to buy a house in Decatur for her and her young son.
