$3,600,000 Settlement — Wrongful Death Rear-End Collision
Attorney: Donald Dunn
Rarely do rear-end collisions result in death but recently our attorneys resolved a case where our client was hit from behind and suffered severe injuries which eventually lead to his death. Our client was in a construction zone where the construction company used unsafe and negligent signage and flags to warn of the danger. Our client was hit from behind and suffered a spinal fracture which paralyzed him from the chest down. He remained in hospital/rehab for approximately 9 months before ultimately passing away due to his injuries. We sued the driver of the other vehicle and the construction company. After filing suit, the case was settled at mediation with both defendants for total compensation of $3.6 million for surviving relatives.
