Wrongful Death – Full Policy for the Estate of a Rhode Island Man

The plaintiff was the operator of a motor vehicle when his vehicle was struck late at night by a vehicle driven by the defendant.  The plaintiff suffered a leg fracture and was treated at a local hospital prior to being released home.  Approximately a month later, the decedent suddenly passed away after suffering a blood clot.  A causal relation to his death and the motor vehicle accident was established resulting in a settlement of the full policy against the principle operator, as well as the underinsured benefits available to him from his own insurance policy
