Client was a 15 year old boy that was lured into a garage by a few older teenagers. He was held against his will and was beaten over the next several hours. During this incident, our client was even held at gun point and pistol whipped. After the criminal case concluded against the older teenagers, we made demand upon the insurance companies that covered them. Though the insurance carriers denied liability pursuant to the “intentional act exclusion”, we were able to secure a settlement for our client at mediation in the amount of $150,000.00.
