$75,000Man Involved In Head-On Collision With Drunk Driver, Settles For $75,000
On May 15, 2015, a 37-year-old man from Woodstock, Illinois was involved in a head-on collision with a teenage drunk driver. The accident occurred on McConnell Road and Heron Way in McHenry County. The man sustained a right open traumatic knee fracture with associated femur and patella fractures which required surgical intervention. The teen was charged accordingly with DUI. With a life-changing injury, the man quickly became a client of Staver Accident Injury Lawyers, P.C.
Under the experience and knowledge of Chicago personal injury attorney Jared Staver, the man knew he was in good hands. Jared made a demand upon the insurance company of the teenage driver. While we continued to negotiate with the negligent driver’s insurance, we were able to successfully convince our client’s insurance company to pay $75,000 through an underinsured motorists claim.
