$700,000 SETTLEMENT IN NORTH CAROLINA WRONGFUL DEATH/DRUNK DRIVING CASE
Our pedestrian client was killed by a drunk driver in North Carolina. After an in depth investigation to discover them, five insurance companies contributed to the settlement of this tragic case. The lawsuit involved claims against the driver and owner of the defendant driver's car as well as claims against two bars that served the drunk driver. The driver had a Blood Alcohol Content of .24 when he hit our client who was a pedestrian walking along the side of the road. In North Carolina a bar that serves a drunk driver can be held liable and claims were made against the two bars that served the defendant.
The parents of the deceased decided to settle the claim rather than put the family through a trial.
