Our Iowa clients were driving on Highway 151 on a winter day as they approached a curve. Another motorist was coming the opposite way and driving too fast for the conditions. As a result, he lost control of his vehicle, crossed the center line and caused a collision. The force of the impact sent both vehicles into the ditch.
One of our clients needed back surgery, suffered a wrist fracture and additional abrasions. The insurance company offered only $130,000. In mediation, Attorney Jenna Green nearly doubled that, settling for $250,000.
Another one of our clients was involved in the same collision. Her injuries weren’t as serious, but she was still in pain. The insurance company offered $27,500, but Attorney Green obtained $45,000 in mediation.
The total settlement for both clients was $295,000.
