$1,000,000.00 (Wrongful Death)
$1,000,000 Recovery for Wrongful Death of Brother In December 2017, Kohn Law Office in association with Skolnick Law Group obtained a $1,000,000 settlement just weeks before trial for the brother of a 63-year-old disabled man who was struck and killed by defendant's vehicle when the 89-year-old defendant driver lost control of his truck and drove onto the walkway hitting the man in his wheelchair outside the emergency room entrance at the new Palomar Hospital in Escondido, CA. This settlement was split as follows: $500,000 paid by underlying carrier USAA Insurance Co., $500,000 paid by the umbrella carrier, Scottsdale Insurance Co. This is believed to be the largest wrongful death recovery for a single sibling in San Diego County history.
