Wife of Police Officer Killed in Collision with Drunk Driver
One of the very first drunk driving fatalities in 2008 was the tragic tale of the Minnesota police officer who had his wife with him for a "ride along" on New Year's Day. In the early hours of the morning, a young woman was driving her vehicle on the wrong side of the freeway and struck his vehicle head-on, killing the officer's wife almost instantly. The woman who struck the police vehicle was so drunk that she couldn't even remember the accident.
The police officer hired SiebenCarey on behalf of himself and his deceased wife's next-of-kin. Cory Whalen was able to successfully recover $140,000 in an Uninsured Motorist claim for the officer and his wife's family.
