Ronald MacPherson* was a retired, well loved husband and father of three. One Sunday morning, Ronald got up early and went for a walk around his neighborhood. While crossing the quiet street where he lived, Ronald was struck and killed by a speeding, careless driver.
The Kahler Personal Injury Law Firm’s car accident lawyers commenced a claim on behalf of Ronald’s spouse and his three sons against the driver who caused Ronald’s death. The Firm sought damages to help compensate Ronald’s widow and his sons for their grief and for the loss of Ronald’s valuable care, support and lost future income.
The defendant’s insurance company rejected this claim.
The defendant’s insurance company claimed that it was not responsible for damages for Ronald’s loss of future income because he was a retired investor and his income was uncertain. The insurer also refused to pay for support workers to help care for Ronald’s wife, who required care, because they believed that Ronald was too old to provide his wife the support she required.
The Kahler Personal Injury Lawyers gathered evidence establishing that had he not been killed, Ronald would have continued to earn a good income and that he did and would have continued to care for his wife. The Firm obtained expert reports which supported this claim and established the damages which the MacPherson family suffered as a result of Ronald’s death.
Ultimately, the defence gave in. The Kahler Personal Injury Law Firm settled the family’s claim and obtained for them the compensation they required to provide Ronald’s widow support and care for the rest of her life.
