$766,000 Verdict for a Torn Rotator Cuff
Steve Caya Stands Up Against Insurance Company for Car Accident Victim
Steve Caya obtained a jury verdict of $766,000 for a client who suffered a torn rotator cuff after his vehicle was struck from behind at a high rate of speed.
The at fault driver was uninsured and the client’s own uninsured motorist carrier vigorously defended the claim. The client’s insurer made a top dollar offer of $175,000. Steve Caya refused to settle for that sum and took the case to trial. The jury returned a verdict even higher than what Steve Caya requested in his closing argument.
Car accident injuries should be compensated
If you've been injured in a car accident by a negligent driver, then you deserve compensation for your pain and suffering.
File a claim and get the settlement you need to fully recover from someone else's mistake.
Before filing a lawsuit there's a few things you should know.
Wisconsin operates under a shared fault law, meaning each person is held responsible for a portion of the liability in a car accident. If you weren't fully at fault for the crash, you are eligible to win compensation for your injuries in a settlement or lawsuit should it come to it. Here's a few more things you need to know about making a claim after an accident:
- Can you sue for car accident compensation
