Boone County, MO $3.75 Million Settlement ($3,650,000 over the policy limit)
WRONGFUL DEATH CASE INVOLVING INSURANCE COMPANY
The defendant in a wrongful death case retained us as personal counsel after her insurance company failed to settle the plaintiff’s claims against her for its $100,000 policy limits. Because of our involvement, the insurance company agreed to lift its limits and indemnify our client for the entirety of any potential judgment. After a mediation and a few weeks of negotiations, the insurance company settled the case for $3.75 million, which is a little less than 40 times the policy limits.
