Distracted and Careless Driver Causes Fatal Accident
Our client was the victim of a double car accident. A father and son were traveling on Interstate 35 when a woman coming the opposite direction went off onto the shoulder, over-corrected and slammed into our client's vehicle. A witness reported that the woman had been driving over 100 mph and was talking on her cell phone prior to the collision. Our client's vehicle came to rest in the traffic lane of Interstate 35 and the woman's vehicle went into the ditch.
Shortly after the first crash, a third vehicle struck our client's crashed vehicle, pushing our client's car into the ditch. As a result of the second collision, our client's father, a passenger, died. The woman driving the first vehicle also died as a result of the collision.
Jeff Montpetit and Harry Sieben recovered $250,000 in this case, aiding our client in recovering from significant medical problems as well as medical bills and the loss of his father.
