Halsema v. Hertz Rent-A-Car - $800,000
A driver of a Hertz rental car suddenly made a left turn from the far right lane of a local roadway that had two lanes going eastbound. The driver was unfamiliar with the road and mistakenly thought the left lane was a westbound lane rather than both lanes being eastbound. He struck our client’s vehicle and seriously injured her. The Hertz driver had no insurance coverage. As such, Hertz had an obligation in this case, but denied responsibility. The case went to trial resulting in a verdict of $800,000 for our client.
