A distracted driver exceeding the speed limit rear-ended a St. Mary’s County resident on his way home from work on Leonardtown Road, in Waldorf, Maryland. The client’s injuries prevented him from being able to work his prior job as a carpenter. Prior to Matt Trollinger’s representation, State Farm employed a popular insurance defense tactic: delay, deny, and defend. For two and a half years after the injury and before Matt's involvement, State Farm did not make a single offer nor did it accept responsibility for the car crash or injuries their driver caused. Instead, State Farm called it an "accident" and attempted to delay justice. Through a hard nosed litigation strategy, this well deserving client got the insurance policy limits of over six figures, just before the car accident case was scheduled to go to trial in Charles County.

* Many attorneys, insurance companies, and clients call an incident when someone was injured an “accident.” For this reason, our website uses this word. But an incident is not really an "accident" if there were rules in place to keep us all safe, yet someone chose not to follow those rules — and, as a result, someone else was hurt. When you speak with Trollinger Law, you'll find we talk instead in terms of "crashes," "collisions," etc.
