In July 2015, our client was a passenger in a car traveling northbound on U.S. Route 127 when the car was involved in a motor vehicle accident. The defendant driver, who had been involved in another accident prior to this one, was stopped on the roadway when the car our client was traveling in struck the defendant’s car, traveled off the right side of the road, and landed in a ditch. Our client was rushed by ambulance to a nearby hospital to treat her injuries. Unfortunately, she had sustained massive internal injuries and sadly passed away a few days after the accident. After an investigation, it was discovered that the defendant had been under the influence of alcohol and had a BAC level of .162 at the time of the accident – more than twice the legal limit.
We were contacted by the family just days after this horrific accident occurred and our team worked to help the grieving family through this difficult time by ensuring they got the justice they deserved. There is no amount of money that can account for the loss of one’s life or take away the pain that our client’s family has endured, but we were successful in reaching a settlement that will assist our client’s family as they move forward.
