On August 23, 2018, Amerisure Insurance Company offered its full policy limit of $6 million to settle claims against its insured, an Iowa Corporation. Nicholas Rowley, founder of Trial Lawyers for Justice, P.C. headquartered in Decorah, Iowa sent a written demand to the insurance company giving it fourteen days to tender its full policy limits, and not a penny less, which it did.
Trial Lawyers for Justice attorneys Nicholas Rowley, Dominic Pechota, Matt Reilly, and referring lawyer William Sims represented the family of a 59 year-old man who was struck by a motor vehicle which was operated by an employee of the company. The client was securing cargo on the back of his semi-tractor trailer on a rural highway in broad day light when he was struck by the company owned vehicle. Settlement was reached just over a month after suit was filed.
