$750,000 for the Wrongful Death of an 82-Year Old Man in a Trucking Collision



Truck Accident


Walworth County, Wisconsin

In July of 2004, Attorney Timothy M. Whiting won an out-of-court settlement in Walworth County Circuit Court for $750,000.00 concerning an 82-year-old man killed in a trucking accident.

The settlement was gained on behalf of the Plaintiff, the Estate of Kenneth J. Runk, an 82 year-old man who was killed in the incident. Mr. Whiting obtained the full amount available under the Wisconsin wrongful death caps (of $350,000.00) and was able to negotiate over the cap, creatively arguing significant economic losses of the deceased surviving wife who was in need of 24-hour care from her husband.

The case was brought to settlement a very short period of time due to the immediate preservation of the accident scene investigation, witness statements, the preparation of a key settlement video prepared prior to settlement, and a very sophisticated economic-loss analysis. The case was resolved in less than 12 months.

The firm has also won numerous cases that were either settled or tried before a jury and resulted in millions of dollars in recovery for the firm’s clients over the past 15 years.
