Steve Caya secures statutory maximum in wrongful death case
In a tragic case, Steve represented the minor children of a woman who was killed in a motor vehicle accident in Wisconsin.
The accident was the result of a government employee crossing the centerline and striking the vehicle of the deceased head-on. Initially, the government denied any responsibility, claiming the accident was due to an unforeseen medical issue suffered by their employee, thereby absolving him of any responsibility.
After filing a lawsuit and conducting an intensive investigation of the incident, Steve was ultimately able to convince the government their defense was meritless, and the claim resolved for the statutory maximum of $350,000 for the wrongful death along with an additional $250,000 for the future care needs of the minor children, including college tuition.
