Our client was riding his sport bike on an Appleton, Wisconsin residential road on a sunny summer day when a parallel parked car pulled out and struck his right side.
The insurance company contended that our client was speeding and deserved a large amount of the blame. Our client's medical bills totaled about $7,800 for his foot injury and the insurance company's "top offer" was $13,525.
Attorney Robert Domol rejected the offer and filed suit. At mediation, the insurance company upped its offer to $25,000, which was also rejected. The case settled a few weeks before trial, when the insurance company agreed to pay $35,000, nearly three times the original offer.
