We are proud to announce that we have recently successfully settled a wrongful death claim against the at-fault driver's insurance.
This was a challenging case. The client had turned to two separated attorneys prior to coming to us. Both attorneys have refused to take up the matter, claiming that the client's spouse, who was killed as a result of the auto accident, was partly at fault and, thus, the client "did not have a case."
Those attorney's relied solely on the police officers' investigation, which was conducted with numerous violations, as we have discovered later on.
We gladly took up the challenge. We retained an accident reconstruction team which did a thorough investigation of the case. Fortunately, the at-fault driver was driving a brand new BMW and the expert team was able to pull the 'black box' from the car. The 'black box' reading determined that the BMW driver was speeding immediately prior to the accident.
Faced with clear evidence of their insured's fault, the insurance adjuster had no other choice but to settle.
