$800,000 Settlement In a Fatal Pedestrian-Involved Car Crash

Published: Sep 6, 2016 in Auto Accident, Wrongful Death

A few years ago, a male pedestrian was walking along the road at night when an intoxicated driver struck him with his work vehicle, resulting in his untimely death and leaving his three minor children without their father. Afterward, the man’s family contacted the capable Southern Illinois auto accident and wrongful death lawyers with Cates Mahoney, LLC in their time of need. The firm’s experienced car accident attorneys worked relentlessly to recover compensation and successfully negotiated a settlement of $800,000, which would go a long way in helping the man’s children secure financial support for the future.

The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
