Wrongful Death Minor Settlement $800,000 Settlement

Catastrophic Injury, Verdicts and Settlements

Bland Richter settled a wrongful death case involving the tragic death of a young child who was killed by a drunk driver while attempting to board a school bus. The intoxicated driver was problematic in two manners: first, he had only minimal insurance and no assets; second, the remaining defendants pointed to his unlawful conduct as a bar to recovery. After extensive discovery following commencement of the litigation, the claim ultimately settled for approximately $800,000.
