A woman came to Foster Wallace after having another attorney who previously represented her in a car wreck. She was hit by a drunk driver in 2017 during the middle of the day. Since she only experienced soft tissue damages, the insurance company had only offered her $2,000 with her prior attorney before he told her he could not represent her further and she asked Foster Wallace to assist her with her case.
Foster Wallace sought a second opinion with a different doctor for our client who was able to help her better diagnose her back injuries. After the doctor gave his opinion, Foster Wallace quickly filed a lawsuit. After the lawsuit was filed in Johnson County, Kansas, the insurance company quickly upped their offer from $2,000 that they offered our client and her previous attorney and we ended up settling the case for $60,000.
