Florida Law Weekly Publishes Dawn Carsten's Order Rejecting Plaintiff's Partial Acceptance of Proposal for Settlement in PIP Case
November 30, 2017
Florida Law Weekly has published Dawn Carsten's order rejecting the Plaintiff's partial acceptance of a Proposal for Settlement in Personal Injury Protection case. The Court found that the parties did not have a meeting of the minds, as the Plaintiff's attempt to partially accept only the benefits portion of State Farm's Proposal for Settlement served as a rejection of State Farm's Proposal for Settlement and instead was a counteroffer State Farm could accept or reject.
The Court agreed with State Farm's argument and the case law that State Farm presented to the Court for review granting the Defendant's “Motion to Strike ‘Plaintiff's Written Notice of Acceptance of Defendant's Proposal for Settlement to Plaintiff as to Benefits Only'."
