$250,000 Recovered for Durham County Client

In 2020, Maginnis Howard attorneys Shawn Howard and Karl Gwaltney recovered the maximum available insurance coverage of $250,000 for a Durham County man who was struck head-on by a drunk driver. The firm not only recovered the $150,000 of bodily injury coverage but was also able to show that the $100,000 of property damage covered the possibility of “punitive damages” against the drunk driver.

This was the drunk driver’s second DUI offense. His reckless driving resulted in the firm’s client undergoing multiple surgeries and being hospitalized.
