The Plaintiff’s medical bills totaled approximately $37,000.00. The insurer made an offer pre-suit that the client was inclined to accept; however, Boughter Sinak, LLC believed the offer did not represent the fair value of the claim and, therefore, the offer was rejected and a lawsuit was filed against the at fault driver. Shortly thereafter, Boughter Sinak, LLC was able to resolve the claim for the fair value without defense counsel ever filing an appearance.

Winter Speeding Collision
Client was involved in a motor vehicle collision when the at-fault driver was traveling too fast for conditions and was unable to stop for a stop sign on a winter day thereby sliding through an intersection. Client did not present to an emergency room on the day of the accident but was seen several days later by her primary care physician who diagnosed her with neck pain, right wrist pain, back pain and headaches. Thereafter, she did not have any treatment for her right wrist until approximately 8 months later and it was not until approximately 11 months later she was diagnosed with a ligament tear in her wrist necessitating surgery. The Defendant denied liability and further denied that the wrist injury was causally related to the automobile accident. Boughter Sinak, LLC retained a medical expert, which casually related the ligament tear and resulting surgery to the accident. In addition, Boughter Sinak, LLC retained an economist to estimate client’s loss of future earning capacity claim. After lengthy litigation, the at-fault driver’s insurer paid out $50,000.00, the maximum recoverable under the subject policy of insurance. Boughter Sinak, LLC made an underinsured claim under the client’s policy of insurance and successfully negotiated an additional $135,000.00 in new money to settle the underinsured claim.
Client was involved in a head-on collision with an excavating truck that was towing a Cat Skid Steer. The at-fault driver failed to yield to client’s vehicle and made a sudden turn in front of her vehicle, resulting in the client suffering fractures to her leg and ankle. While the client made a good physical recovery, she was at risk for future problems with her lower extremity. Boughter Sinak, LLC retained an independent medical expert to give an opinion regarding the complexities of her injuries and the long term prognosis. In addition, a life care expert was retained to provide a cost projection of future medical expenses. The client owed approximately $63,000.00 in medical bills. At mediation, the defense denied liability and offered only $135,000.00, which was promptly rejected. The battle waged on and months later Boughter Sinak, LLC was triumphant in securing the client the fair value of her claim.
