$250,000 Policy Limits Settlement for Wrongful Death in Head-On Collision
T.E. was a married father of one who was killed while driving home from work. On a two-lane road in St. Louis County, Missouri, a distracted teenager crossed the centerline and collided head-on with T.E.’s small pickup truck. The force of the impact caused his truck to become airborne and turn over on its side. The interior crushed around him, requiring that he be extricated from the truck. He was rushed to a local hospital, where he underwent two surgeries in an effort to save his life. Sadly, he died, leaving behind his wife of ten years and a six-year-old daughter.
The teenager’s parents carried an insurance policy of $250,000. After negotiation, the insurance company agreed to pay its policy limits.
Confidential Settlements in Nursing Home Cases:
David Terry and the Terry Law Firm have resolved dozens of cases involving the wrongful death of Missouri nursing home residents. Most of those settlements involve confidentiality clauses that do not permit the specific disclosure of the residents involved or their family members. However, it is fair to say that Terry Law Firm has facilitated millions of dollars in settlements in nursing home cases such as:
- Falls resulting in broken bones
- Falls resulting in brain injuries
- Falls resulting in death
- Bed sores resulting in death
- Asphyxiation on bed rails resulting in death
- Misplaced feeding tubes resulting in death
- Physical abuse of nursing home residents.
