On a cool February day in 2016, our client was driving toward Spring Creek Road in Rockford, Illinois. While waiting to merge at a yield sign, they were rear-ended by another vehicle.
Attorney David Metnick took the case and began his pursuit of the insurance company. In this case, the photographic evidence obtained at the scene did not fully represent the property damage that occurred. As a result, the insurance company didn’t want to take the car accident case seriously and presented a low-ball offer. By keeping the focus on the client’s injuries, not the photos, in a hotly contested pretrial ruling, Attorney Metnick was able to convince the jury to award over eight times the insurance company’s last and best offer, ensuring our client was fully compensated.
