Attorney Michael F. Hupy won a $1.1 million verdict for a client after State Farm Insurance Company made no offer to settle his motorcycle accident claim. State Farm had asked for a new trial based on alleged erroneous rulings of the Court; State Farm's attorneys claimed that the evidence did not support the jury's finding of negligence and that the damages were too high.

The trial court denied State Farm's motions. Our client had originally retained another law firm that dropped him as a client after two-and-a-half years because State Farm would not make an offer to settle his case and the original law firm did not think it could win the case.
