Kohn Law Office Secures $1,000,000 Recovery For Wrongful Death Of Client’s Brother

Posted by Russell S. Kohn, Esq. | Jul 27, 2018 | 0 Comments

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 lost his life in a pedestrian accident.

The decedent had recently left the new Palomar Hospital in Escondido and was seated in a wheelchair outside the emergency room entrance. The defendant, an 89-year old man, lost control of his truck, drove onto the sidewalk, and fatally struck the decedent. Although it was clear that the defendant was not capable of safely operating the vehicle due to his age, and that the decedent had done nothing to cause the accident, a settlement was still initially resisted by the responding insurance companies. It is through the efforts of our Oceanside wrongful death attorneys that a settlement offer was eventually secured, avoiding a trial.

The settlement payment 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. The case result marks another monumental achievement for Kohn Law Office. We have long strived to do amazing things for our clients in trying times, and it is a point of pride to be able to say we have delivered again and again.
