Passenger Ejected From Car Wins Settlement

Posted by PKSD Law Firm on Jan 21, 2011 in Car Accidents

Injury attorney Richard Kalkhoff, of Pitman, Kalkhoff & Sicula S.C., won a $250,000 settlement on behalf of Wild Rose teenager involved in an auto accident that occurred near Waushara, Wisconsin.

The Plaintiff and two other friends were traveling on County Highway MM one mile east of Hwy. 22 when the driver, also the defendant in this case, accelerated the car to speeds in excess of 100 mph. While traveling at those high rates of speed, the car passed over a hump in the road causing the vehicle to become airborne, cross the center-line and collide with an oncoming vehicle.

The impact sent the car into a spin that ejected the Plaintiff through the rear window and into a corn field causing him to suffer severe neck and back injuries. The case settled prior to a suit being filed for the policy limits of $250,000.

After being injured in a car accident, it can be very difficult to know what to do next or who you can trust. In many instances, insurance company  representatives are pushing accident victims to settle the claim as soon as possible and what many people do not know, is that insurance companies are not on your side. Their primary goal is to close that accident claim for the smallest financial amount possible.
