Our client was a passenger on a spring afternoon in Savanna, Illinois. The driver was going around a corner and the vehicle began to fishtail as it slid into a light pole.
Our client had a scar from the accident, but the insurance company offered less than $5,000. They argued that since our client was a middle-aged male, as opposed to a young female, that his scarring wasn’t a big deal. The insurance company also tried to lowball our client because the driver was under the influence of alcohol.
Hupy and Abraham took the case and Attorney David Metnick obtained more than $50,000, over ten times the original offer. After all bills and fees were paid, our client came out more than $26,000 ahead.
