On August 29, 2004 in Bayside, Wisconsin, Donna Mack-Iwanski was a passenger on her husband’s motorcycle as they were traveling on Brown Deer Road when a driver suddenly pulled out from a side street and smashed into them. It became apparent to everyone at the scene of the accident that she had received a very serious leg injury as a result of the impact.
She was transported from the scene of the accident to Froedtert Memorial Lutheran Hospital. Upon her arrival, the doctors did everything they could to try to save her leg, but unfortunately, after numerous surgeries, the doctors were unable to do so and were forced to amputate her leg below the knee. Mrs. Mack-Iwanski was a model patient, however, from the date of the accident forward, having a positive outlook and reminding herself that the accident could have been worse. Throughout her physical therapy and follow-up appointments, she worked tirelessly to get herself back as close to normal as possible.
As a result of the accident, Mrs. Mack-Iwanski incurred approximately $260,000 in medical expenses. Attorney Jason F. Abraham was able to get the insurance company to go to mediation before filing a lawsuit. After a number of hours of mediation, Attorney Abraham was able to get the case resolved where the total payouts will amount to $2.9 million.
Thankfully, our client is now able to go back to work with the use of a prosthetic device.
