Case Results: Personal Injury

Grant Sigmon represented a young man who was nearly killed in a motorcycle accident on July 4, 2014. He was airlifted to Baptist Hospital in Winston-Salem where he was given life-saving medical treatment and underwent a series of medical procedures. Prior to Sigmon’s involvement, the client was informed that only a minimal amount of insurance coverage was available, which would not even cover a fraction of his medical bills. Sigmon ultimately recovered $350,000 for the client, exhausting the policy limits of three separate insurance policies.

Grant Sigmon represented a young girl who was viciously attacked by her neighbor’s dog. More than a year after the attack, her leg was badly scarred and plastic surgery was recommended.
