Litigation Type - Wrongful Death Accidents
Client Injury - Death
Our client's father had gone to a cabin in Northern Wisconsin. He was returning from the cabin riding as a passenger in rural Wisconsin. The driver pulled out to cross the highway from a side road and didn't see an oncoming vehicle. The two vehicles collided and our client's father sustained traumatic head injuries and internal injuries. He was transported by helicopter to North Memorial Hospital but died shortly after the accident.
Art Kosieradzki filed a wrongful death claim against the driver's insurance company. The case was settled for $375,000, higher than the $350,000 cap for Wisconsin non-economic damages as the settlement included compensation for pre-death suffering.
