Just weeks before their high school graduation, a 17-year-old senior was a passenger in a car driven by another senior in LaGrange, Dutchess county. As the driver took the curve he realized he was going too fast. He couldn’t negotiate the curve and the car left the road striking a fence, overturned and struck a tree. Two weeks later the passenger passed away from internal injuries. Ultimately the insurance company offered the full $250,000 available policy limits. The case was handled by Managing Attorney David Akerib.
