Case Study – Personal Injury Lawsuit Chicago

Type Of Lawsuit:

A woman was driving her minivan with her five children when she rear-ended by another woman who was driving a rental car at excess speed. As a result of the rear-end collision, the woman’s seat broke and she then slipped out under the seat belt and was ejected from her car. Shortly thereafter, she died. Her children were all buckled in and were not severely injured other than they witnessed their mother dying.

Brief Description Of Initial Issue and why The Horwitz Law Group was hired.

The husband hired Mark Horwitz to try to quickly get him in touch with a loan company to loan him money to be able to bury his wife as well as to try to figure out who was the legal owner of the vehicle and attempt to settle the claim as quickly as possible.

Length Of Time It Took To Settle Case:

Less than three months

What Was The Outcome And Why:

Mark Horwitz was about to obtain the entire policy for the woman killed in the accident. The case continues as to her children who are still being treated for their injuries as well as the psychological toll that they have experienced as a result of seeing their mother die.

Total Amount Won:

Confidentiality clause added to release so the amount is private.
