Our client was injured after an automobile accident in Rockford. She had many pre-existing medical conditions and sought treatment for a pulled muscle in her neck several months prior to her accident. The insurance company became fixated on her unrelated pre-existing medical conditions and the prior treatment of a pulled muscle in her neck.
The insurance company refused to relate any treatment other than her emergency room visit after the automobile accident and offered only $11,000.00 to settle the case.
Attorney Vito Manicioto filed a lawsuit and aggressively litigated the case through discovery. Attorney Manicioto was able to prove the full extent of the injuries she sustained as a result of the accident and he forced the insurance company to tender its $100,000.00 policy limits.
