Attorney Joe Pierotti Obtains $122,500 Settlement for Client with Permanent Chronic Pain

Attorney Joseph PierottiThis case involved two defendants. The first defendant lost control of their vehicle, drove it off of the road, and struck a street light, causing the street light pole to fall into the roadway and into the path of travel of our client. Our client then struck the fallen street light pole. A few seconds later, the second defendant rear-ended our client’s stopped vehicle at approximately 30 MPH. Our client sustained injuries primarily to her neck, including a small central disc protrusion with radiculopathy, which required physical therapy. When physical therapy provided the client with minimal relief, she began treatment with an interventional pain physician, which involved various medications and injections to correct the issues resulting from the car accident injuries. After concluding that the client had permanent chronic pain, Attorney Joe Pierotti was able to settle the cases with both defendants, resulting in a settlement of $122,500.

Attorney Andrew Larson Obtains Settlement for Almost Four Times More than Original Insurance Company Offer

andrewThis case involved an intersection accident that occurred when the at-fault driver ran a stop sign, leaving our client no time to stop before t-boning the at-fault driver. With no health insurance and limited means to pay for medical care, our client received sporadic and limited care for her injured head and neck. The at-fault driver’s insurance company cited the limited medical care as a basis for providing a minimal settlement offer without full appreciation of our client’s injuries. Unwilling to accept the insurance company’s limited valuation of our client’s injuries, Attorney Andrew Larson filed a lawsuit. As Attorney Larson worked through the litigation process, the insurance company began to see the flaws in its valuation and ultimately offered almost four times more than they offered before the lawsuit was filed.

danIn this Wisconsin case, an uninsured driver pulled out from a stop sign right in front of our client on his moped, causing a collision. Our client sustained serious injuries and turned to his own insurance company for help through his Uninsured Motorists coverage. Our client’s insurance company initially offered substantially less than the applicable policy limit, so Attorney Davis threatened to pursue a cause of action for Bad Faith.

Stolen Vehicle Crash Fatalities Up in Milwaukee

cartheft2

This year alone, 10 people were killed in Milwaukee car crashes involving a stolen vehicle. The victims were either occupants of a stolen vehicle or were in another vehicle involved in a stolen vehicle crash. This is a significant increase compared to previous years. According to the Milwaukee police, there were only 2 fatalities due to stolen vehicle accidents in 2014. The amount of stolen vehicle deaths this year represents about 16 percent of all traffic fatalities in Milwaukee in 2015.

What is even more troubling is that some of these accidents have involved teenagers. In November, two teenagers were killed in separate crashes in Milwaukee involving underage drivers without licenses. To see a list of all of the incidents involving stolen vehicles this year, see the article from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel here: http://www.jsonline.com/news/milwaukee/deaths-from-crashes-in-stolen-vehicles-up-sharply-in-milwaukee-b99623076z1-357239181.html

To avoid car theft, remember to always lock your car doors, park in well-lit areas, and lock garage doors. You should never leave your car running unattended or leave your windows open. For added security, you may want to consider installing a GPS tracking system or alarm system on your car. Also, do not leave valuable personal property in your car. Many car thefts happen when a high-value item is visible in a vehicle.
