Reed’s client was traveling with her young daughter when she was t-boned at an intersection near Mascoutah, IL, in St. Clair County. The defendant driver ran a stop sign and provided no excuse for failing to yield. She was cited at the scene. Reed acted quickly to secure evidence, take photos, and interview police officers and other witnesses. The defendant’s insurance carrier made multiple low offers, but Reed didn’t budge from his settlement demand. Eventually, the defendant’s insurance carrier offered the full policy, which was Reed’s demand all along.
