Our client was rear-ended by a school bus in traffic and suffered a shoulder injury to a previously injured shoulder. After undergoing conservative care for several months, but after little improvement, our client underwent surgery.
The school district refused to discuss settlement and Hupy and Abraham filed a lawsuit. After a year of litigation, defense made a low offer of $10,000.00 and instructed our client to take it or leave it. With our recommendation, our client rejected the low offer and we continued litigation until the court conducted a pretrial settlement conference.
The court agreed with Hupy and Abraham that the offer was too low and we stood our ground until the defense finally offered $85,000.00 for settlement.
