Chicago Injury Lawyer Reaches Policy Limits Car Accident Settlement

In Chicago, Illinois auto accident attorneys from Abels & Annes, P.C. have reached an insurance policy limits settlement for a Berwyn resident stemming from a February 17, 2008 collision. Our client was northbound on Interstate 94 on the South Side of Chicago at the Stoney Island exit. A car in front of the plaintiff missed the exit at Stoney and instead of going to the next exit, the defendant tried to stop and back up on the highway. Our client could not react in time and slammed into the defendant.

She was taken by ambulance to Northwestern Hospital in Chicago, Illinois with a badly broken leg. She had to have surgery the next day to repair the fracture. The car accident case settled without having to file a lawsuit. The defendant’s insurance company initially denied the claim, arguing that our client failed to stop in time and should have avoided the accident. The insurance company changed it’s position after our law firm got involved in the case.
