Dothan Alabama Wrongful Death Lawyer Settles Case and Preserves Claim for Child

September 11, 2012 by

Dothan Alabama Wrongful Death Lawyer Aaron Gartlan of the Hogg & Gartlan Law Firm settled a claim without filing a lawsuit with Hartford Omni Auto Plan for a good hard working Alabama mother on behalf of her minor child as a result of the death of the father in an automobile wreck.

 

Based on the accident report and Aaron Gartlan and the Law Firm’s investigation, the father was attempting to enter a Dale County Alabama street from a parking lot when the other driver was traveling on that street and subsequently collided with him. Due to the harsh impact of this crash, the father suffered cardiopulmonary collapse, as a consequence of brain injury, which caused his death. 

 

In this case, the mother and father were not married and paternity had to be established in order for their minor child to have a claim. Therefore, Aaron Gartlan and the Law Firm hurriedly obtained a court order for the local hospital to preserve DNA of the father to establish paternity and preserve the claim of the minor child, which allowed the mother to recover on the child’s behalf.

 

Aaron Gartlan and the Law Firm were glad to be contacted by the family in time to preserve the child’s claim and allow the mother to recover. If fast action was not taken, the settlement would not have been possible. Therefore, David Hogg and Aaron Gartlan of the Hogg & Gartlan Law Firm recommend you immediately obtain the advice from an experienced personal injury and accident lawyer if a family member, friend or you are involved in an accident involving injury or death.
