$88,500 Settlement for PTSD and Neck Strain in Car Crash with Cattle
Wisconsin accident victim gets big compensation in lawsuit
Steve Caya obtained a settlement of $88,500 on behalf of a client who suffered PTSD and neck strain when her vehicle struck cattle on a highway in the middle of the night. Steve Caya’s investigation of the incident established the livestock were able to escape the fenced area as a result of pallets falling on the fence and knocking the fence down. The pallets were owned by a business located next door to the livestock operation. After filing a lawsuit and conducting two depositions, the business agreed they were responsible.
