Mr. Sawyer was a high school senior when his heart suddenly stopped during recess between classes. His medical bills totaled hundreds of thousands of dollars. He had health insurance coverage with State Farm, but the insurance company denied his claims for benefits, claiming that his father made misrepresentations on the insurance application.
Mr. Sawyer hired attorney John Romano to pursue his claim for benefits against State Farm. Following a multi-week jury trial, John Romano prevailed, and then successfully pursued a case against State Farm for bad faith, resulting in a significant settlement for Mr. Sawyer.
