NY Medical Malpractice & Personal Injury Trial Lawyer
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.
