In July of 2010, our client was involved in an accident caused by an uninsured driver, leaving our client with almost $70,000 in medical bills. Thankfully, the client had an insurance policy with a limit of $100,000.
However, Attorney Evan Claditis noticed that the client’s policy provided $100,000 for him and $100,000 of identical coverage for his wife. Since the accident occurred in July of 2010, Wisconsin’s “Truth in Auto” legislation was in full effect, meaning that the policies could be stacked and that the client really had $200,000 worth of coverage.
Furthermore, Attorney Claditis pointed out that the client also might need to have spinal surgery sometime in the future and needed to be compensated accordingly. On that basis, Attorney Claditis successfully secured $200,000 for his client by stacking both policies.
