Farmer Wins Prominent Case

In August, 2017, Tiffany Steward obtained a favorable arbitration award in Los Angeles County on behalf Preferred Employers Insurance Company.  The dispute arose from a motor vehicle versus pedestrian accident wherein Preferred Employers Insurance Company was seeking recovery of workers’ compensation benefits in excess of the at-fault driver’s $100,000.00 policy limit.

A dispute arose amongst the injured parties multiple attorneys and Preferred Employers Insurance Company regarding the disbursement of the available policy limits.  Ms. Steward convinced the at-fault party’s carrier to fund mediation and arbitration.  Ms. Steward ultimately arbitrated the matter and obtained an award allocating the entire policy limit of $100,000.00 to Preferred Employers Insurance Company.
