Statutory Maximum for Wrongful Death and $200,000 for Consequential Damages
Janesville Injury Lawyer Attains Statutory Maximum in Wrongful Death Case
Steve represented a young mother whose husband was killed while transporting logs for a lumberyard.
While the deceased was in the process of unloading the trailer, a log rolled off the top striking the deceased and killing him instantly. The insurance company for the lumberyard initially took the position the lumberyard was not at all responsible and the accident was due to the decedent’s failure to properly check the load. After filing a lawsuit and after deposing various employees of the lumberyard, Steve was able to show to the insurance company the lumberyard’s safety procedures, or the lack thereof, were the cause of the decedent’s death. The claim resolved for the statutory maximum of $350,000 for the wrongful death and an additional $200,000 for other consequential damages.
