Personal Injury Settlement

The family of a man killed in an automobile crash that also left the man’s adult son seriously injured settled its claims for $8.2 million.

Ralph Meekins reports that the defendant driver and his employer paid the settlement.

Pursuant to a confidentiality agreement, many details of the case, including how the crash occurred and the names of the parties and defense counsel, have been withheld.

Meekins said that there were no medical expenses associated with the deceased man’s claims because the man, 57, died at the scene.

His 24-year-old son had approximately $325,000 of admissible medical expenses related to his injuries, which included two broken legs.

Meekins said that during mediation, he presented a 15-minute “day in the life of” video that he believes was instrumental in demonstrating the tremendous loss suffered by the family and that helped set the tone for the productive discussions that led to the settlement.

Meekins said that he was assisted by his son Will, a third-year law student at the University of North Carolina School of Law.
