Litigation Type - Car Accidents
Client Injury - Death
Cory Whalen represented a father who lost two sons, age 6 months and 2 years, in a car accident. They were riding with their mother and step-cousin. All 4 were killed as a result of the accident. The insurance company who insured the vehicle they were all riding in offered only $5,000 per child to settle the case. There was much more insurance coverage on the car but because they were not willing to treat our client fairly, Cory Whalen took the insurance company to Court. The jury not only awarded the full $100,000 policy limits, but because the insurance company did not meet their obligations, the outraged jury awarded $1.57 million.
