$80,000 Awarded in Michigan Car Crash Injury Case

$80,000 Awarded in Michigan Car Crash Injury Case

If you’re injured in a car accident, please feel free to contact one of our auto accident lawyers in Beloit or Janesville. You can get the financial compensation you deserve.

For example, an $80,000 settlement was recent approved in Michigan’s Lenawee County Circuit Court. The settlement comes from a lawsuit over injuries a Morenci man suffered in a 2011 traffic crash that killed the drivers of two vehicles.

The award was to the estate of James Crossman, who died three months after the crash at the age of 61 of an unrelated illness.

The driver of the car Crossman was riding in, Billy Joe Cavasos, and the driver of the second auto, Joshua Michael Weage both died as a result of the Aug. 27, 2011, crash. Crossman’s estate had sued for serious injuries he suffered in the crash as a passenger in one of the two cars that collided head-on.

A Lenawee County Sheriff’s Department report claims that Weage rear-ended a horse trailer then crossed into the oncoming lane and struck the oncoming Cavasos auto.

In March, a wrongful death claim against Weage’s estate was settled in probate court with a $100,000 insurance payment to Cavasos’ family.
