Plaintiff sustained a fractured left wrist in a motor vehicle collision, requiring placement of an external fixator. She missed four months from work at her long time job as a customer service representative for United Airlines  at Dulles Airport. Although her fracture healed in good alignment, she continues to experience intermittent pain and is unable to make a complete fist with her left hand. Kostas Constantine, M.D., testified by video deposition.

Three insurance policies applied. GEICO offered $25,000 liability limits on behalf of the defendant. Hartford offered their total underinsurance coverage exposure of $75,000. Foremost would offer only $25,000 of their $50,000 underinsurance coverage limits.
