$265,000 Settlement for Mequon SUV Failure to Yield the Right-of-Way

On September 24, 2003 in Mequon, Wisconsin, a motorcycle rider from Cedarburg was operating his 2000 Harley-Davidson motorcycle when a 1996 Ford Explorer failed to yield the right-of-way at a stop sign and struck the motorcycle. The rider had no time to take any evasive action.

As a result of the accident, our client received a serious leg fracture that required surgery and skin grafting. It was clear to Attorney Jason F. Abraham that the value of this case exceeded the at-fault driver’s insurance policy limits of $250,000. Although Attorney Abraham immediately demanded the payment of the policy limits, the insurance company refused to pay them.

As a result of the insurance company’s inaction, Attorney Abraham filed a lawsuit against them. The motorcyclist received not only the $250,000 policy limits but also an additional $15,000 from the at-fault driver personally.

Thankfully, the motorcyclist is back to work and continuing in his recovery efforts.
