Meza's family reportedly sued the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago, New Holland North America Inc.- the manufacturer of the skid steer loader machinery that reportedly caused Meza's death, and F.H. Paschen, S.N. Nielson/IHC Construction. Although details of the allegations were mostly withheld, the Meza family is reportedly seeking an excess of $50,000 in compensatory damages.

  1. After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
