$5 million…Kam L v. Coppola services.
In one of the most tragic cases this office has seen, two mothers and their four teenagers were driving on the New York State Thruway in a van. When they sustained a flat tire, instead of pulling over onto the shoulder, the mother who was driving inexplicably stopped the van in the right MOVING LANE of traffic. Meanwhile, a tanker truck traveling at a steady 65 miles an hour somehow inexplicably did not see the stopped van and barreled into it at full speed literally cutting it in half. There were two survivors with grave injuries and four fatalities. We got the maximum insurance that was available to cover these claims.
