Our client was an 80-year-old woman who walked across a busy Rockford street. She almost made it to the curb before the defendant hit her with his car and knocked her down. The insurance company blamed our client, offered no money and denied liability because our client was not walking inside a marked crosswalk.
Attorney David Metnick filed a lawsuit and the insurance company continued to deny liability and offer no money. After David Metnick deposed the defendant, the insurance company quickly reversed course and tendered their $50,000 policy limit days after the deposition.
