Out of State
One judge wrote that a bad faith insurance case that Henry won for his clients before the Supreme Court of Florida changed Florida’s legal landscape. Henry believes being a lawyer means that if a mountain stands in his client’s way, the mountain is going to have to move. It’s with that determination and will that he’s won case after case and is ready to take on yours.
OUT OF COURT
Winning a case is not limited to a courtroom. Settlements are favored and quicker. In many instances, a case can get settled out of court by capable, knowledgeable and savvy attorneys like Tracey Baker. She prides herself on obtaining settlements for the insurance policy limits without having to go to trial. Knowing the law, practicing it and caring about her clients is what motivates Tracey. When she negotiates top settlements without the angst and expense of trial, that’s a win-win for her clients.
Henry and Tracey are excellent on their own, but even more exceptional when they combine their decades of experience. Often, they collaborate to produce results in excess of policy limits when the available insurance simply isn’t enough to cover all damages. With both Henry and Tracey on your side, you will have the strength of a powerhouse legal team.
"Some think inside the box. Others think outside the box. We think there is no box."
- Henry A. Seiden
Many car accidents cause injuries that damage spinal discs. Seiden Law routinely obtains settlements between $500,000 to $1,000,000 for these cases, even if our clients are injured by uninsured motorists. When the insurance company unreasonably delays payment in bad faith, Seiden obtains more than the policy limits for our clients and seeks changes in the law, if we have to.
Know that we always go the extra mile to get the results our clients deserve, sparing no expense. And if it’s a tough case, we’ve Been There, Won That ®, too.
Seiden Law won a $9.4 million jury verdict for a young motorcyclist whose lawyers hired us to help their badly injured client. Dylan Machado sustained brain damage when a car’s driver negligently cut in front of Dylan’s motorcycle. The driver’s insurance defense lawyers alleged that Dylan was not wearing a helmet.
Our lawyers found an eyewitness who saw Dylan wearing the helmet when his head hit the ground. We also presented medical and bio-mechanical expert testimony to establish that Dylan’s brain trauma from the crash was inevitable, even when a helmet was properly worn.
Seiden Law obtained a $2.7 million jury verdict for a client whose car was rear-ended in a parking lot. Our client initially sustained a neck sprain. Six months later, she suffered a debilitating stroke that left her in a wheelchair. We successfully linked the neck sprain to her stroke.
Even though the people who rear-ended our client only had $50,000 in insurance, we discovered that State Farm had a secret program that allowed recovery from State Farm, regardless of insurance limits. As a result, we collected the entire $2,700,000 verdict from the insurance company a month after the jury’s decision. We then arranged for a special needs trust to protect Valda Bell’s funds, empowering her to purchase a specially-outfitted house for the handicapped and receive quality care and assistance.
This case resulted in a $2.9 million settlement arising from a drowsy driver’s negligence that caused our client to undergo surgery to replace damaged neck discs. The negligent driver had worked an all-nighter before the accident. Seiden retained a Harvard University expert who was the consultant for NASA and the Space Shuttle regarding sleep deprivation and its kinship to alcohol intoxication. Then we presented the compelling evidence to the presiding judge that a drowsy driver is just as impaired as a drunk driver. As a result, Seiden obtained the first Court Order in Florida granting the right to pursue punitive (punishment) damages against the driver, his company and their bosses for punitive (punishment) damages.
Maria Sadler’s car was hit by an uninsured motorist, causing her neck pain. A year later, she developed multiple sclerosis. Seiden Law successfully presented solid medical evidence at trial that our client’s multiple sclerosis was undiagnosed before the accident but was aggravated by the accident to become symptomatic. The jury agreed, awarding Maria a $756,700 verdict against her uninsured motorist insurer. Even though our client only purchased $100,000 in uninsured motorist coverage, we still collected the entire $756,700 for her by again suing her insurer, this time for bad faith. They paid as soon as we filed the bad faith lawsuit.
Lucky? Nope, this is what we do for our clients. Another case: we collected a $920,000 insurance bad faith lawsuit settlement for a client when the available uninsured motorist coverage was only $10,000. We do it. Again and again. And we can do it for you.
In the landmark Florida Supreme Court case of Allstate Ins. Co. v. Ruiz, 899 So.2d 1121 (Fla. 2005), our representation changed Florida’s legal landscape for all victims of insurance company bad faith and resulted in a confidential settlement for our clients. The Allstate v. Ruiz precedent forced insurance companies to permit inspection of their previously hidden claim files. Seiden Law’s success in advocating this important change in Florida law allowed our clients – as well as all injured claimants and policyholders — invaluable access to crucial evidence to prosecute an insurance bad faith lawsuit.
We took on Joaquin & Paulina Ruiz’ case when no one else would. Many of our clients’ settlements are confidential which means we can’t tell you how much money we got for them. But confidentiality allows our clients to obtain top money by giving the insurance companies protection from letting others know how much money was paid.
Our lawyers have obtained many other satisfying results for clients — a $4.5 million settlement for a client brain damaged from a head-on car accident from an insurance company going out of business; a $2,500,000 jury verdict for wrongful death in a car-truck accident; $2,500,00 for medical malpractice that injured a child; a $1,100,000 settlement for a car accident that caused our client to develop reflex sympathetic dystrophy; and $700,000 settlement for wrongful death of a man due to an undiagnosed heart condition.
When a physician was the victim of medical malpractice because her colleagues misdiagnosed her breast tumor, she contacted Seiden and we achieved a confidential settlement for her in a little over a year. We’re known to professionals in the medical, legal and insurance fields. When other lawyers have tough cases with big damages and not enough insurance coverage, Seiden Law is where they refer their clients.
