The following was a recent wrongful death car accident settlement from GJEL Accident Attorneys.

About The Case

A couple was struck in a car accident while their eleven-year-old daughter was watching. Both parents were injured, with the wife ending up on life support with no hope of recovery, and the daughter suffered relatively minor injuries.

As a result, the husband was forced to make the decision to end his wife’s life support. The daughter and her two brothers were left without a mother; their father was left without a wife and with his own physical injuries to deal with.

The defendants in this case were the driver of the car and his insurance company, California Casualty.

The Settlement Amount

GJEL Accident Attorneys argued all available claims on behalf of this family, arguing wrongful death cases on behalf of the husband and three children, as well as injury cases on behalf of the husband and daughter. GJEL was able to recover $816,000 for this family.

GJEL has recovered over $950,000,000 for clients who have been injured or experienced the loss of a loved one.
