Romanucci & Blandin Senior Attorney Bryce T. Hensley secures two auto collision settlements
Romanucci & Blandin, LLC, a national personal injury firm primarily based in Chicago, announces two legal settlements for auto collision cases that took place in the Chicago area.
In one case, the plaintiff was a 66-year-old man walking from his home to a bus stop in Lincolnwood, Illinois on November 25, 2020. When he crossed the street, the defendant’s car drove through a red light, struck the plaintiff, and sent him airborne. When the elderly man crashed into the pavement, he sustained pelvic fractures, a dislocated shoulder, and other various bodily injuries. Despite the fact that the defendant driver was uninsured, the legal team led by Romanucci & Blandin Senior Attorney Bryce T. Hensley secured the full amount of $500,000 under the plaintiff’s own policy through Farmers’ Insurance.
The second case involved a 36-year-old female plaintiff who was struck by an uninsured driver while driving her vehicle on June 9, 2019. The impact from the defendant’s vehicle caused a significant shoulder injury and rotator cuff tear for the plaintiff, who required surgery and physical therapy. Despite the defendant driver being uninsured, the legal team secured a $161,265 settlement from the plaintiff's own auto policy through State Farm Insurance.
“These settlements emphasize the importance of having uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage on your own auto insurance policies. When negligent or reckless drivers cause collisions and they lack adequate coverage, your own insurance can provide you with a safety net for your injuries, pain, and suffering,” stated Romanucci & Blandin Senior Attorney Bryce T. Hensley. “But even when dealing with your own insurance company, it’s critical to have an experienced attorney on your side to navigate the complexities of the insurance process and maximize your recovery.”
Both plaintiffs were also represented by Romanucci & Blandin Partner Martin D. Gould.
