You can't make this stuff up!

A woman in Nassau County killed her 3 kids in 2008. She drowned each one of them. Then she attempted to commit suicide.

After drinking toxic chemicals and trying to jump out of a second-floor window, she was arrested and ultimately pled insanity.

The father of two of the children who were killed brought a lawsuit against the Department of Social Services claiming negligence. He was successful in obtaining $250,000. The father of the third child also brought a separate claim against the Department of Social Services and was able to settle for $100,000.

Here's the problem.

Now there's $350,000 to distribute to the children's closest living relatives.

In this case, who are the kids closest living relatives?

The answer is...mom and dad.

Mom is in a psychiatric facility since she killed her kids. Mom is now claiming that technically she is entitled to receive a portion of the wrongful death settlement proceeds.

Here's a cardiac malpractice case where I was able to achieve a $6 million dollar settlement for my client.

Here's a foot surgery case where a Westchester, NY jury awarded my client $1.55 million dollars for her pain and suffering.
