Evaluation of Evidence Wins Automobile Accident Death Claim
A man was involved in a fatal collision at a new grocery store in Lakeville, MN. He was operating his car in the Taco Bell drive-thru and after picking up his order, his car accelerated across the parking lot, over medians and crashed into the side of the store. He was killed immediately. Art Kosieradzki was hired by his widow to help collect benefits from their auto insurance company as well as a life insurance policy. Both companies refused to pay, claiming that his death was caused by self-inflicted injuries and not covered. Mr. Kosieradzki hired investigators and engineers to prove that the death was accidental, not intentional. The evidence presented to police officers and the medical examiner later caused them to amend their original reports ruling the death accidental and the insurance companies finally paid on policies as they were bound to.
