$1.35 Million for Family in Vehicle-Into-Building Crash
In 2012, Davis Law Group helped recover a $1.35 million wrongful death settlement after a vehicle-into-building crash. Our client, Kaye, was a 60-year-old woman working as an office manager for an insurance company in Renton when a devastating car accident took her life.
Kaye was working at her desk on an otherwise normal weekday when an elderly woman driving on a nearby road crashed through the front window of the business and landed on top of Kaye's desk. Tragically, Kaye was trapped underneath the rubble.
Kaye's husband, Larry, said he and his family interviewed a total of three law firms before they eventually decided to hire Davis Law Group "for a myriad of reasons." The case went to a jury trial, but both sides decided to settle the case for $1.35 million before the trial was completed.
