Attorney Matthew Tievsky Represents Injured Taxicab Driver, Secures Award Over Four Times Insurance Company's Offer

Chaikin, Sherman, Cammarata & Siegel, P.C. is pleased to announce the successful outcome of a case handled by Associate Matthew Tievsky on behalf of a local injured taxicab driver. In the case, Attorney Tievsky represented a taxicab driver who was injured outside of a Metro station after being rear-ended by another taxicab driver.

As a result of the collision, our client's vehicle suffered damage and, more importantly, our client suffered injuries to his neck and back. He accumulated thousands of dollars in medical bills and had to spend weeks in physical therapy.

Initially during the case, the defendant's insurance company chose to believe that the harm to our client was not significant and made a very limited offer to settle the case – just $2,500. However, Mr. Tievsky and his client refused to accept such a low offer and took the case to trial before the Circuit Court for Prince George's County, where Mr. Tievsky won an award of over $11,000 – more than four times the final offer by the insurance company.

Our firm is proud of the work and determination Attorney Tievsky devoted to this case, as well as his willingness to take the case to trial. This case highlights the fact that insurance companies are in business to make money, not pay victims, and that experienced attorneys can protect injured victims from being unfairly compensated. Without qualified representation, our client may have accepted the insurance company's very small settlement offer.

Our firm has represented many car accident victims throughout the years, and has recovered millions of dollars in compensation on their behalves.
