A man from Brooklyn was driving a car owned by his uncle. His wife was seated in the front passenger seat. The man lost control while driving the vehicle, the vehicle left the roadway and struck a tree causing the demise of his wife. The man had three young children, ages 1, 3, and 5. Our law firm had the man’s brother-in-law appointed legal guardian of the three children for the purpose of the lawsuit. The legal guardian sued the man and his uncle on behalf of the three children for the loss of their mother. There was a maximum of $300,000 in available insurance coverage. The case settled for $300,000 before it was necessary for anyone to testify at a deposition. The settlement was placed into a structured settlement so that each child would receive $250,000 when they reached the age of 21 years.
