Not long ago, a man was leisurely riding his motorcycle in Quincy, Illinois when he was suddenly struck by another vehicle, who apparently ran a red light. An Adams County ambulance transported the injured victim to Blessing Hospital where he spent a week being observed and treated for various injuries, including an ankle fracture, intracranial hemorrhage, pulmonary emboli, lacerations, and contusions. This motorcycle accident and the injuries he sustained required months of follow-up appointments and six weeks of physical therapy, which justifiably put a considerable financial burden on him. Therefore, in hopes to alleviate his substantial losses, he decided to contact the experienced Illinois motorcycle accident attorneys at Staver Accident Injury Lawyers, P.C. to go over his legal options.

Staver Accident Injury Lawyers, P.C. immediately began working and contacted the other driver’s insurer, who originally disputed their liability. Undeterred, the experienced legal team continued to represent their client’s best interests and started negotiating with the insurer. This led to the insurer’s admission of liability and an initial settlement offer. Upon review, the amount presented was not sufficient for the client’s needs and Staver Accident Injury Lawyers, P.C. fervently fought for every possible dollar on behalf of their client. This culminated with all the parties involved agreeing to a $300,000 settlement and the client was pleased to know that he could now sufficiently recover from his injuries without financial concern.

The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
