A woman driving down NC 62 outside of Greensboro was killed when her Mitsubishi was struck by a commercial truck that ran a stop sign. Even though she was wearing her seatbelt, the force of the collision was so great that she was ejected from the vehicle, resulting in extensive blunt force trauma that almost immediately resulted in her death. The deceased was a thirty-two-year-old graduate of Davidson College who was survived by her parents and her brother.
The defendant company had terminated its excess liability insurance policy just before the collision. The case partially settled with their primary insurer for the $1 million limits in the first suit that was filed in the matter. A second suit was filed against the corporate entity, as well as its individual owners and other closely related family businesses where the plaintiff sought to “pierce the corporate veil” of the primary defendant company in order to hold the other defendants jointly responsible. These defendants made an Offer of Judgment for an additional $750,000 a week and a half before trial to bring the total recovery in the case to $1.75 million.
