MILWAUKEE, March 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- In January 2011, Attorneys Michael F. Hupy and Jason F. Abraham traveled to Madison to fight passage of Senate Bill 7 (SB 7). SB 7 would repeal the Truth in Auto Law passed in 2009 and roll back liability coverage minimums to 1982 levels. This bill would severely restrict the legal rights of anyone hurt in a motor vehicle accident in Wisconsin. Attorneys Michael F. Hupy and Jason F. Abraham opposed the bill before the Wisconsin Assembly and Senate Joint Committees on Insurance.
The Senate Bill 7 would substantially limit the ability to relieve the long term financial burdens of injured clients prohibiting the victim to combine the uninsured motorist coverage from several auto insurance policies the victim has purchased. The bill would also allow insurance companies to use "reducing clauses," which would lower the amount injured motorists can collect when hit by uninsured drivers.
Attorney Jason F. Abraham declared, "We fought for the defeat of Senate Bill 7 because it would force many innocent accident victims to file bankruptcy and force Wisconsin taxpayers to pick up the tab." Abraham also said, "My clients' suffering does not end with their injuries. They lose their ability to earn a living as they once did, they are subjected to severe emotional stress and, of course, they incur medical bills in the hundreds of thousands of dollars."
