Family Car Accident

Case Overview

$650,000 settlement for a son whose father was killed in an auto accident during a family vacation in California.  The negligence of the son’s mother caused the accident. 

Case Summary

Recognizing that such an action would be barred in California,  we successfully argued that the insurance laws of the parents’ home country, Canada, should apply.  After successfully defeating a motion to have the case dismissed from the California court system, Mr. Bock traveled extensively to interview and depose witnesses, ultimately negotiating an excellent settlement under the circumstances for the child.
