Fatal Work Related Car Accident - $600,000 Settlement
While working on the job and driving a county truck in Mississippi, this 41 year old married father of two was broadsided by a gravel truck. The force of this serious accident resulted in his wrongful death. Before we were hired to assist his widow, the two children had already accepted settlements and the workers' compensation case had also already been settled.
But over a period of years, her attorneys had unsuccessfully tried to negotiate an acceptable settlement for her as well. Because she felt that the proposed offer was far too small, she hired us instead to see if we could do a better job for her. Her trust in our office was well placed, because within less than a year our affiliated attorneys secured a settlement of $600,000.00 which was more than double the sum that her previous attorney had been offered. Our client was very pleased and felt that justice had now been done.
