Golfer Falls Victim to Bad Driver on NC Course: Charles Boyk Law Helps Them Get To the Green

Our client was a retired man who was on a golfing trip with friends in North Carolina. He was putting on the green when his playing partner mistakenly ran him over with his gold cart. The partner panicked and backed over him a second time. The result was multiple surgeries. Further, our client was never able to play golf again and could only walk with a walker.

The first attorney was discharged, and we were retained 6 months before the North Carolina statute of limitations. We added value in the following ways:
■ We ordered all the medical records to date including the prior records.
■ We did a nurse paralegal record review.
■ We found the underlying homeowner’s policy from the defendant and an applicable corporate policy from the golf course.
■ When the treating orthopedic surgeon refused to cooperate we obtained an exam and file review with a new treating doctor who wrote a fantastic report.
■ The 2 insurance companies admitted liability and coverage but could not agree on which was the primary insurance carrier.
■ We retained co-counsel in North Carolina who we knew through common membership in a national Legal Mastermind Group.
■ A lawsuit was filed, discovery was exchanged, and all the depositions were taken.
■ A month before the trial we took part in a Zoom mediation in North Carolina where we obtained a confidential settlement.

This settlement allowed our client to be financially secure in his retirement and improve the quality of his life. As long as you have some form of insurance coverage, negligence of an individual, and some creativity a no value case can potentially become a policy limits case.
