Curran v. State Farm Insurance - $4,650,000.00

On June 20, 2006, Robin Curran was headed southbound on Wickham Road in Melbourne, Florida, when her vehicle was struck from behind by an uninsured/underinsured motorist and suffered serious injuries. Fortunately, Ms. Curran carried uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage on her own insurance policy with State Farm to protect herself. Unfortunately, State Farm refused to pay Ms. Curran the benefits she was entitled under the policy for which she paid premiums. As a result of the accident, Ms. Curran, 44, sustained an injury to her brachial plexus, which resulted in a very unique and serious condition called Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD). This condition left her with significant and permanent loss of use of her left hand and arm, as well and tremendous constant pain due to this nerve injury. There are limited treatments for RSD, and Ms. Curran’s symptoms are managed by a permanently installed device that releases pain medication on a regular basis. Prior to the accident, she was the manager at the Babcock location of Petty’s Meat Market, a longtime local establishment known for their specialty meat and gourmet food.

Ms. Curran’s attorneys at Alpizar Law, LLC filed suit against State Farm in Brevard County, Florida. After a four-day trial, a Brevard County jury awarded Ms. Curran $4.65 million in damages.
