Estate of John Lantz

David S. Henson

Practice Area:Car / Auto Accident

Outcome:$1,200,000.00

Description:Mr. Lantz was hit head-on by a driver who had bald tires and was driving at excessive speed around a corner. Our client was catastrophically injured, and suffered quadriplegic paralysis along with a host of additional injuries. He was able to live for 50 days with round-the-clock medical care, until he and his family decided to remove life support and allow nature to take it's course. In order to demonstrate to the defendants and their insurance company the profound loss that this wreck caused, our firm produced a 20 minute "Day in the Life" video of Mr. Lantz. This documentary highlighted his life story, his dedication to his family, the circumstances and facts of the wreck, and the severe injuries that he suffered, told through family members, nurses, and spinal cord injury physicians. The case was ultimately settled at a voluntary mediation. The family recovered all of the settlement.
