While speaking with a local insurance company adjuster the other day, he told me that he was awaiting word on a trial in another state. I asked him about the case, and he said that it was a toss-up, but he thought — at least hoped — that he would win.

The claim involved an auto accident in which his insured had made a left turn in front of another vehicle and had been broadsided. His insured said that she had not seen the other car approaching. The accident was in the early morning hours, and he had a witness who said that the other car had not had its headlights on. He thought that there also might be a second witness, but had been unable to find that person.
