Wrongful Death Caused by Exhausted Tow Truck Driver

We recently completed a wrongful death claim for the family of a 46-year-old professional woman who was the single mother of four children. She was on her way to her eighth-grader’s graduation ceremony when an extremely sleepy tow truck driver crossed the center line, smashed into her car, and then hit a second vehicle behind her, injuring the family in that other car. The tow truck driver was so sleepy that his customer had offered to buy him a cup of coffee so he could stay awake on the road. The tow truck company carried adequate liability insurance for the cases to eventually settle for the insurance policy limits.
