Despite the current bad weather across the country, warmer days and motorcycle rides are just around the corner. This is a good time to review your insurance policy to ensure you are properly covered. Unfortunately, even with proper training and awareness campaigns gearing up for the summer, bad things happen. If you or someone you know is injured in a motorcycle crash, contact a lawyer with a reputation of winning. Don't rely on gimmick advertising, fancy names and logos, or other exaggerated claims. Here is a case we settled in 2014, through hard work and experience.
More Than $4,000,000 for Illinois Rider
On May 28, 2014, Hupy and Abraham, S.C. attorneys Jason Abraham and Vito Manicioto obtained a settlement with payouts of more than $4,000,000 to an Illinois rider who was severely injured in a crash caused by a motor vehicle driver failing to yield the right of way when making a left-hand turn.
Our client needed eleven surgeries to mend the multiple orthopedic injuries he sustained, in addition to a traumatic brain injury. Due to the permanent nature of some of the injuries, this young man is unable to work. His medical bills were more than $700,000. The insurance company failed to make an offer for several years. In fact, the company waited until the eve of a hearing when it made its initial offer of $1.6 million. After that, the insurance company offered $1.8 million and $2.5 million before ultimately settling the case for Attorney Abraham’s only demand — the policy limit be paid.
Not only did this client sustain serious physical injuries, but he also suffered psychological injuries. Complicated cases like this require exceptional skills from the legal staff representing the client. Attorney Abraham is an owner at Hupy and Abraham, S.C. and works in the Milwaukee office. Attorney Manicioto works in the Gurnee, Illinois office and together, they provided the client with the excellent service our firm is known for. Working with the attorneys was a very competent staff of investigators, legal assistants, litigation secretaries and paralegals who provided not only legal support, but also personal assistance and reassurance to the client during his trying ordeal.
