$650,000 For Injured Motorcycle Rider in Newton, North Carolina

In this case, the lawyers at Hendren & Malone represented a motorcyle rider who was hit while riding on a rural road in Catawba County, North Carolina. The driver of the car that hit our client was driving without a license. Our client suffered severe injuries requiring significant hospitalization and rehabilitation. The claim settled at a pre-suit mediation that involved our client’s underinsured motorist insurance carrier. An interesting twist in this case involved the insurance coverage. Our client had underinsured motorist coverage on a work vehicle that would ordinarily not have applied because the policy was in the name of a corporation. However, we successfully argued that the corporation had been dissolved a few months before the wreck which meant that the policy, which was renewed during the intervening time period, was renewed on behalf of an individual rather than a corporation. Based on that analysis, the insurance company agreed to provide coverage.

Mike Malone was absolutely fabulous to work with. He represented my daughter in a case and we could not have been happier! He was upfront from the beginning about expectations, honest through out the case and above all.. caring! Even though I lived 2 hours away, he was more than willing to accommodate us in any way, even if it meant driving out of his way! Mike is one of the smartest lawyers you will find. I recommend him to everyone! I have known him now over 8 years and we still keep in touch. Thanks Mike. - Christy Smith
