Krezinski v. Hay
Wisconsin Supreme Court
77 Wis. 2d 569 (1977)
Izetta Hay (defendant) was driving her vehicle and negligently pulled out from a driveway into traffic, causing a crash. Krezinski (plaintiff) was injured and pursued a claim against Hay and her insurance company (defendant). Krezinski was treated for her injuries and agreed to settle her claim for $2,300. Krezinski received the funds and executed a release, including a release of liability for all known and unknown personal injuries, developed or undeveloped, that arose from that accident. Subsequently, Krezinski began having grand mal epileptic seizures due to a condition caused by the crash. Krezinski sued Hay and her insurer. Krezinski sought damages and alleged that the release was void due to a mutual mistake regarding her condition. Hay and her insurer requested summary judgment.
