Insurance company offers $10,000, jury awards $1.57 million

A Hennepin County jury has awarded $1.57 million to a father who lost two sons in a car accident. Originally offered $5,000 by Progressive Insurance for the life of each son, Charles Dack, of Mora, took his case to a jury that agreed that the offer was unacceptable.

According to Dack's attorney, Cory Whalen from SiebenCarey in Minneapolis, Dack's sons, six-month old Jonathan Johnson and 2-year old Jacob Johnson, along with their mother and step-cousin, were killed in car accident in 2005. Settling the insurance claim on this fatal accident was difficult not only because so many people were involved, but also because the boys' young parents had never married and each lived with one of their parents. Progressive tried to capitalize on the situation by offering to settle for far less than the family's policy was worth.
