Stop light intersection where client was rear ended at red light and awarded $120,000

Our client was travelling northbound on South Alpine Road in Rockford, Illinois and approached a stoplight. As she slowed down for the red light, she was rear-ended and found herself in the middle of a four-car accident. She sustained back and shoulder injuries that required surgery.

The insurance company tried to lowball our client with an $80,000 offer. Attorney James Theisen rejected the low offer and prepared to file a lawsuit.  The insurance company caved and increased their offer by 50 percent to $120,000.
