On a clear August night, Hupy and Abraham's client was riding her bicycle on North Avenue in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin. As she attempted a right turn, a motorist struck her even though she was in a crosswalk. The client injured her knee in the accident, requiring two surgeries that totaled $93,000 in medical bills.

Initially, the insurance company refused to accept liability or make an offer. Without filing suit, Attorney Todd Korb settled the case for $195,000 at mediation.
