Hibbing Jury Awards Family For Loss Of Son
A Hibbing jury recently awarded nearly three-quarters of a million dollars to the family of a 27-year-old emancipated man who died in a car accident in April 2004.
Duluth attorney Paul F. Schweiger, who represented the plaintiff, credits the impressive out-state verdict with favorable witness testimony and what he believes was the jury's annoyance with the insurance company.
"We had good witnesses that the jury could identify with and sense their loss," Schweiger said. "And I think there was some degree of irritation with Western National."
