Attorney Daniel Davis Obtains Six-figure Policy Limits Settlement for Client Hit by Uninsured Driver

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. When that happened, the insurance company quickly changed its tune and offered its policy limit. At Davis & Gelshenen LLP our attorneys do not settle for what the insurance company wants to pay, we fight to get our clients what they deserve.

Attorney Andrew Larson Turns $2,000 Offer into $35,000 Settlement

Attorney Andrew LarsonIn this case, our client was involved in a motorcycle accident during a local benefit ride. An inattentive oncoming car forced motorcyclists onto the shoulder and into the ditch, causing the client to lay down his bike. Our client, a small business owner, had limited time to seek formal medical treatment and care related to the shoulder injuries he sustained. Due to the limited treatment, the insurance company claimed that the client had not sustained any real injury and only offered $2,000. Attorney Andrew Larson filed a lawsuit and utilized his litigation experience and insight of the insurance industry’s practices to obtain a much more acceptable settlement for our client.
