After settling an automobile accident case for the defendant’s entire limit of liability insurance, PBC client John Steffens was summarily ordered by the trial court to repay almost $65,000.00 to his health insurance carrier, to reimburse it for back surgery Mr. Steffens endured long after the accident. Working as a team, PBC Attorneys John Peterson, Amy Risseeuw, and Summer Associate Emily Lonergan pursued a successful appeal in the Wisconsin Court of Appeals. The Court held that the funds did not have to be repaid, and that the case must be sent back for trial where the health carrier will have the burden of proving that the surgery was caused by the accident.
