Allstate Pays $22 Million to Car Accident Victim in Bad Faith Lawsuit

The car accident, which took place in 2009, ended with Allstate having to pay $22 million dollars instead of the $250,000 the claim originally asked for.

The victim of the accident won the verdict at the Philadelphia court of Common Pleas in 2013, but was delayed until 2014 by Allstate until the verdict was upheld.

The victim was a passenger in a car that rear-ended another vehicle in 2009. As the victim and the driver were pushing the car off the road, the victim was hit by another car and crushed his limb. He eventually lost his right leg below the knee because of it.

This is the biggest bad faith settlement in the history of Pennsylvania, and in the nation involving a car crash, according to his attorney.
