Accidental Death and Dismemberment Case Win

In a recent case involving Accidental Death and Dismemberment Insurance (AD&D), Donahue & Horrow LLP founding partner, Michael Horrow, was able to quickly obtain a settlement that was 266% of the value of the benefits outlined in the decedent’s policy.  

Initially, the insurer refused to pay the family of a grandmother who fell in her bathroom and later died as a result of the injuries sustained in that fall. However, the team at Donahue & Horrow LLP helped the family obtain more money than they would have received if the insurance company simply paid the claim initially filed by the family.

Our client’s mother purchased and dutifully paid premiums for Accidental Death and Dismemberment Insurance that promised a benefit to her family should she die from an accident, unrelated to an injury or sickness.  Unfortunately for the family, that is exactly what happened in this case.  The grandmother was found on the floor of the bathroom by her family, and after a visit to the hospital, she was transferred to a skilled nursing facility where she died about one month later.  Her physicians confirmed that her death was caused by the trauma of the fall.

When the family filed a claim for Accident Death and Dismemberment benefits with the insurance company, the company conducted a bare-bones investigation.  Soon after the family hired our team, we were able to secure a swift settlement for the family that was significantly higher than the policy limits.
