$3,000,000 Settlement for Wrongful Death Victim
Sullivan Brill recently secured a $3,000,000 settlement for a 44-year-old-man killed in a head on collision. The accident occurred when a young man, who was under the influence of cocaine while towing construction equipment for a local construction company, hit Sullivan Brill's client's father after swerving to avoid hitting another car. The young man's truck hit the other vehicle and crossed over into oncoming traffic, which is when he struck Sullivan Brill's clients' father's car.
The award was recovered by the father's children and represented 100% of the insurance policy limits of the responsible driver and employer. The case was a culmination of eight videotaped depositions and an expert witness testimony – this allowed Sullivan Brill to build the best possible case on behalf of the client's father. Although the settlement awarded will not take away or lessen the family's grief, it will grant them the financial stability they need in order to move forward in life. Devastated by the loss of their father, the family sought representation from Sullivan Brill after a referral from their attorney in Puerto Rico, which is where the client's father was living at the time of the accident. Throughout the course of this case, Sullivan Brill aimed to provide sound and intelligent legal advice to the victim's family – Attorney Sullivan personally handled the case with the utmost professionalism and efficiency.
