Our client, a high school student from Waukegan, Illinois, was struck while crossing the street in a crosswalk. She suffered abrasions to her face and a concussion, although she made a good recovery.
The insurance company made a low offer of just hundreds of dollars over the medical bills. Attorney Vito Manicioto tried to negotiate with the insurance company in good faith, but they would not take the claim seriously.
Attorney Manicioto filed a lawsuit in order to move the case forward and show the insurance company how serious the claim was. Shortly after filing suit, and through negotiations with defense counsel, he was able to resolve the matter for the $50,000.00 policy limits.
