Our client was rear-ended by a negligent driver while she was waiting at a red light in Black Hawk County, Iowa. Prior to the collision, our client was already suffering from multiple sclerosis and a herniated disc in her back. The impact caused our client’s symptoms to flare up in her back. Before contacting Hupy and Abraham, the insurance companies made no settlement offer and instead asked her to send in medical proof that she was actually injured.
Despite the client’s pre-existing injuries, soft-tissue injuries from the crash, and only $5,200 in out-of-pocket medical bills, Attorney Benjamin Lynch secured the $20,000 policy limits from the defendant driver and an additional $40,000 from her underinsured motorist policy. In addition to the $60,000 bodily injury settlement, Hupy and Abraham recouped the full value of the property damage to her vehicle at no cost to the client.
After hearing the news, the client stated, “I did not expect anything close to the amount you were able to recover. You guys were amazing to me from day one. I am beyond grateful. Thank you so much.”
