Matthew Sauter of Sauter Sullivan LLC recently represented the living children of a mother who was killed in an automobile accident.  The mother was 84 years old and in poor health.  Initially, the insurance company claimed that only $25,000 was available in insurance coverage.  Matthew Sauter and the law firm of Sauter Sullivan filed a lawsuit and, through discovery and depositions, were able to determine that the driver of the automobile was working at the time of the accident.  Prior to trial, the case was settled for $350,000.  Thus, Sauter Sullivan was able to find additional insurance coverage for its clients in this settlement for wrongful death.
