$500k Awarded for Wrongful Death - Adamson Ahdoot LLP

$500k Awarded for Wrongful Death

Our Client was picked up from his residence by the plaintiff in the evening. Once they reached the plaintiff’s house, the plaintiff and our client both smoked marijuana in the car. Our client informed the plaintiff that they had taken a Percocet pill prior to being picked up. Our client fell asleep on the couch of the plaintiff’s residence. The next day, the plaintiff tried to wake our client up and found our client unresponsive, and they ultimately died.

The plaintiff owed a duty of reasonable care to the general public and particularly our client. The defendant breached these duties when they acted unreasonably, carelessly, recklessly, and negligently under the circumstances.

Our client was obeying all laws at the time of the incident and was acting reasonably under the circumstances, consequently alleviating any comparative negligence issues.

It was abundantly clear that liability solely rested with the defendant. Liability was indisputable in this case.

Farmers Insurance accepted liability in this matter. As such, our client was entitled to full compensation for all economic and non-economic damages proximately caused by the defendant’s negligence.
