Drunk Driver Kills Father of Two

$235,000

Litigation Type - Drunk Driving Accidents

Client Injury - Death

Our client's husband was driving home from work and was within blocks from their home in Richfield when another vehicle failed to yield the right of way at an intersection and caused a collision. The collision was the result of negligence and carelessness on the part of the other driver. At the time of the collision, he was legally intoxicated, with a blood alcohol content of .16, was traveling 44 mph in a 30 mph zone, and failed to yield the right of way at the intersection.  The result, two young boys, ages 8 and 9, lost their father.

Jeff Montpetit pursued wrongful death and dram shop claims against the at-fault driver and the two bar/restaurant establishments that served him alcohol and contributed to his intoxication. To complicate matters, one of the establishments had just filed for bankruptcy. Despite this, Jeff successfully settled the claims against all three defendants prior to trial.

My boyfriend was hit by a car and while all the attorneys he talked to said he didn't have much chance of a case, SiebenCarey took him on and gave him a fighting chance. He's still recovering, but SiebenCarey is making it a lot easier.
