Insult to Injury

Palm-Beach-County-Courthouse-Florida

On 7th December 2000, Douglas and Bridget Stewart were in Florida with their daughter Lara then aged 3 months. While Bridget was putting Lara into their rented car, an elderly local woman drove into the back of it – causing Bridget what turned into a very serious spinal injury.

Insult to Injury is an exposé of the scandalous way in which the American litigation system operates. Outsiders see it as a bonanza for persons seeking compensation with jackpot-sized damages paid to the undeserving. This book shows the very different reality. It reveals the vicious war and the no-holds barred approach adopted by insurers such as Allstate who misled the jury and falsely castigated the Stewarts in resisting the claim.

Only after a second lawsuit was the full extent of the ruthless chicanery of Allstate and its attorney revealed. Insult to Injury covers the story of the first trial and the exciting chase for the truth during the second action commenced in West Palm Beach, Florida. Written by an experienced author and former London lawyer, this book is a revealing insight into modern day America where, in the greedy pursuit of profit, integrity has disappeared.
