Woman Hit Twice when Icy Roads Cause Multiple Crashes

$120,000

Litigation Type - Car Accidents

Client Injury - Head and Neck Injuries

The Christmas Eve that hosted this accident was anything but silent and calm. Icy roads produced treacherous driving conditions and a semi overturned in the middle of the freeway. Our client and her fiancee, behind the semi, managed to stop before striking the semi. Multiple other vehicles veered into the ditch to avoid him. However, our client's vehicle was struck while stopped, first by a car that came around the bend and was unable to stop and then by a second semi that slid on the icy roads and crashed in to our client's vehicle.

Our client sustained injuries to her neck and head which caused debilitating side effects such as nausea, sleeplessness, muscle spasms and vision impediments. She hired Cory Whalen when her doctor would not release her back to work and she consequently lost her job.

Whalen took on this Wisconsin case against multiple parties and filed suit. Taking on three defendants, four insurance companies, and two employers, he successfully secured $120,000 for our client in retribution for her injuries and lost wages.
