$500,000 for Student Hit in Marked Crosswalk

Our client, a University of Wisconsin student, was walking in a marked crosswalk when she was struck by a car. She was thrown several feet and suffered broken teeth and displaced fractures of her arm, ankle and facial bones.

The at-fault driver did not have sufficient coverage. Hupy and Abraham pursued our client's claim against the excess liability carrier. After negotiation, our attorney persuaded the excess liability carrier to almost double its initial offer and negotiated a $500,000 settlement.
