In April 2011, an Illinois driver was traveling through an intersection in Gurnee when he was struck by a distracted motorist. While adjusting his radio, the other driver was completely oblivious to the oncoming stop sign, causing a collision.
Hupy and Abraham's client was knocked unconscious upon impact and suffered significant memory loss while also sustaining a serious shoulder injury. However, the insurance company vehemently denied liability for the damages and claimed that Hupy and Abraham's client failed to keep a proper lookout for other vehicles. Upon filing suit, Attorney Brittany Van Roo secured the $20,000 policy limit.
