Waukegan, IL (PRWEB) September 03, 2014
The personal injury lawyers at Salvi & Maher, LLC are pleased to announce they have recently won an arbitration involving a Lake County car accident that occurred back in 1998.
Salvi & Maher, LLC received the Lake County car accident case, Parks v. American Country Insurance (14 MR 642), in December of 2010. Salvi & Maher, LLC was the fourth personal injury law firm to handle the case for the plaintiff because no other attorney could convince the defense to agree to move the case to arbitration. The defense attorneys wanted more discovery and up to that point had ignored prior arbitration requests.
Over the course of three years, the personal injury attorneys at Salvi & Maher, LLC presented at numerous depositions and discovery procedures until the case finally went into arbitration. During this time, the Defense attorneys had only offered $5,000.00 to settle the case and then on the day of the arbitration, they offered $25,000.00 to settle and not proceed with the arbitration. Salvi & Maher, LLC attorney, Albert Salvi, rejected their offers and arbitrated Parks v. American Country Insurance in front of a panel of three arbitrators. Salvi won the case and obtained an arbitration award of $264,000 for his client, who had waited 15 years for his case to be resolved. In order to help resolve this case, Salvi sorted through numerous files, missing bills and medical records.
“It was a difficult case because when we contacted the medical providers they had no record of our client any more and had destroyed his files because the accident was so long ago. But, we are thrilled with the terrific outcome and the closure we were able to provide for our client after many years of waiting, ” says Attorney Albert Salvi of Salvi & Maher, LLC.
