Young Man Dies Trying To Stop Friend

$1,000,000

Litigation Type - Drunk Driving Accidents

Client Injury - Death

Our clients' 18-year-old son was leaning on the driver's side door of his 20-year-old friend's pick-up truck outside a bar where they had been drinking. The 18 year old was trying to convince his friend not to drive because he was drunk. However, the friend drove ahead, knocked down the 18-year-old and ran over his head, causing fatal injuries.

Claims were brought against the bar where the young men were illegally served alcohol as well as against the uninsured driver, and against other available automobile insurance coverage for the surviving family members. Susan Holden obtained a judgment against the driver for $1,000,000, and settled the claims against the bar on a confidential basis before trial.
