Hupy and Abraham's client was the passenger in a single-car accident in Iowa City. The driver lost control of the vehicle on a curve, and she was violently thrown forward. The seatbelt cut into her side, leaving large, painful bruises that eventually turned into a visible indentation on her side.The insurance adjuster quickly dismissed our client's claim. After combing through medical journals, Hupy and Abraham found evidence demonstrating that the blunt force trauma from the seatbelt caused the indentation and was likely a permanent injury. The insurance adjuster still refused to give the young woman a fair settlement so our attorney filed suit. Shortly after, we secured a $20,000 settlement, which was five times more than the original offer.
