Prime Insurance Company Represents Insured SNM Logistics, LLC To Fight and Win Frivolous Litigation

March 18, 2024, Salt Lake City, Utah

Rick J. Lindsey, President and CEO of Prime Insurance Company, a specialty insurance carrier, announced another winning jury verdict in defense of their insured, SNM Logistics LLC, over an alleged trucking accident in Houston, Texas.

The claim arose from two brothers who alleged our insured’s tractor and flatbed trailer struck their car in Houston, Texas, causing them neck and low back injuries

which they claim required over $300,000 in medical bills. Despite Prime developing evidence that the accident never happened, and the medical care claimed was unnecessary, plaintiffs never offered to settle for less than $400,000 (driver) and $150,000 (passenger). Prime refused to settle, and at trial plaintiffs sought more than $300,000 for medical care plus multiples of these amounts for pain and suffering. The jury agreeing with Prime that the accident did not happen, gave SNM the defense verdict so that SNM owes nothing.  As the winning party, SNM can recoup costs of suit that could total $5,000.

Rick J. Lindsey, states, “Plaintiff’s attorneys have been encouraged to go for the gold in these cases.  Prime is not willing to just sell insurance but rather stand by our partnership approach to do what is right for our insureds.  This result proves what is possible when all parties work together.”

Prime worked tirelessly with the insured prior to the trial to develop a plan.

The Insured’s owner authorized fighting this case and, along with the driver, attended the entire trial.  Both were very pleased with the defense Prime provided and are thrilled with the result.  Good Trucking Companies, businesses and individuals need an insurance company willing to fight frivolous litigation.  Prime continues to deliver true value and a partnership approach vs. choosing cheap insurance.
