In the very early morning a man left a bar with his girlfriend somewhere in Orange County. At about 5:00 am, he crashed into our client's car. The defendant then then fled. Our client followed him and called the police. The police arrived and found that the defendant had a large knife and was still drunk. After a few Dr. Visits, our client was feeling better. I contacted the insurance carrier for the defendant. The insurance made a very low offer. I filed suit and as the trial date approached, they asked for mediation. We agreed and went to mediaiton. The last offer was better at lot better, but in my opinion not fair, so no agreement was reached. About three weeks before trial I got a call from defendant's attorney, they finally agreed to pay the minimum policy limits.

What is a Wrongful Death Claim
Wrongful death claims arise when a person dies as a result of another persons failure to use reasonable care. For example a commercial truck driver may have failed to look when changing lanes and crashed into a vehicle killing the persons inside. Perhaps a crane operator forgot to check to make sure equipment was properly tied down and the equipment fell from the crane killing someone. Perhaps a driver underestimated the speed of a motorcycle and attempted to make a left turn causing a crash and killing the motorcycle driver. Or it could have been someone talking on the cell phone did not notice a pedestrian crossing the street. Persons entitled to bring a claim are essentially the same persons entitled to inherit from the deceased. Usually it is the spouse and children of the deceased that are entitled to bring a claim, but not always. A children depended on the deceased are also entitled to bring a claim, even though they were not biological children or even related to the deceased.
Serious injury claims and wrongful death claims are best handled by an attorney. There are often many issues involved in serious injury and wrongful death claims that are overlooked by individuals trying to resolve these claims by themselves. Once a written settlement agreement has been entered into, it is very difficult if not impossible to correct errors. So why risk it? Call me for a free consultation.
