Let’s look at the following case study, in which we managed to secure a $1.4M settlement for our client.
Overview of Case
Our client was walking along the dirt driveway of a residence when a car reversed up the driveway and struck his leg, requiring surgery. His leg later became infected, and it spread throughout his body. He died as a result.
Challenges Faced During The Case
Fault & Liability Issues
The insurance company tried to blame him; it alleged that he walked into the car’s path. We hired an accident reconstructionist who did a full scene investigation to prove that the driver was solely at fault and further that our client was not.
No Money For Medical Bills
Our client had no health insurance and no money but had more than $100,000 in unpaid medical bills. We were able to get nearly all of the medical bills waived.
Measurable Results Of The Service Provided
Health first – our firm guided our client through the medical process so he could receive the best care available, including surgery and follow-up care, despite the fact that he lacked health insurance and money to pay for his medical bills.
Peace of mind – our firm gave our client the peace of mind to focus on care and not worry about his bills.

What Is Wrongful Death?
A wrongful death claim arises against a person or organization whose careless or malicious behavior resulted in someone’s death. Often, it is presented by the deceased’s estate or remaining family members.
Cases involving wrongful deaths include those brought on by car accidents, pedestrian accidents, medical negligence, workplace accidents, and more. The claimant must demonstrate that the other’s negligent act or omission resulted in the death.
Compensation for losses includes pre-death pain and suffering, medical bills, burial costs, missed pay, and loss of companionship, among others, all of which may be recovered in a successful wrongful death claim.
Wrongful Death In A Pedestrian Car Accident?
Unjustified deaths frequently result from car crashes involving pedestrians. The injuries that might result from a car hitting a person can be serious and frequently deadly.
In circumstances where the motorist was careless, irresponsible, or otherwise caused damage, the victim’s family may pursue a wrongful death claim against the driver. To establish wrongful death, the plaintiff must show that the driver violated their duty of care, which led to the collision and, eventually, the pedestrian’s death.
Compensation for losses includes pre-death pain and suffering, medical bills, burial costs, missed pay, and loss of companionship, among others, all of which may be recovered in a successful wrongful death claim.
