A Hupy and Abraham client was riding as a passenger in a vehicle that was rear-ended by another vehicle. The insurance company argued that the driver struck the car in front of him before being rear-ended by the car in back. Although the police report corroborated this version of events, several witnesses revealed that the car was rear-ended first.
During the crash, the client was not wearing a seat belt and needed four months to recover from the injuries, but fortunately no permanent injuries were sustained. The case took several years to settle because the insurance company was uncooperative but Hupy and Abraham negotiated a $50,000 settlement that was agreed upon at mediation after filing suit.
