Verdict & Settlement Wins
Put Your Accident Behind You
Court: Cuyahoga County Common Pleas
Plaintiff's Counsel: William S. Jacobson, Jonathan D. Mester
$700,000 Paid by Insurance Company In Infant Wrongful Death
Plaintiff’s baby was killed in a motor vehicle accident when an uninsured driver went left of center. The baby was ejected from the vehicle and may not have been properly restrained. The mother had 2 subsequent miscarriages which we alleged were caused by the depression over the loss of her child. Litigation ensued against the insurance company which issued a policy to our client’s employer. Plaintiffs successfully claimed that the language of the employer’s policy which defined who was an “insured” was sufficiently vague and ambiguous to include the plaintiffs. The case was settled shortly before trial.
