Virginia Wrongful Death Case Settles for $80,000

According to news reports from Winchester, Virginia, a wrongful death case has settled for $80,000. While at first blush the amount may not seem like a lot for a death, there were several factors influencing the settlement amount. First and foremost, the insurance coverage available was only $100,000. Secondly, the truck driver who was responsible for the accident was claiming a medical emergency resulted in the accident. For these reasons, the settlement appears to be a good result. It is also a lesson in that insurance coverage is crucial for the protection of your loved ones. If the decedent had had underinsured motorist coverage in excess of $100,000, then a greater recovery would have been possible. What is your uninsured/underinsured coverage? Do you know? Is it enough to protect you and your family in the event of a severe accident? This case is a good illustration of the problems most personal injury cases have in today's world.
