In this tragic wrongful death case, we represented the mother of a young man who was killed in a motorcycle accident. The decedent was on his motorcycle when defendant driver ran a stop sign. Defendant’s carrier tendered its minimal $15,000 policy right away. Decedent had a $500,000 underinsured motorist policy. Decedent’s carrier refused to tender the remaining coverage available under the policy, but after an initial round of discovery and after the mother’s deposition was taken, we were able to obtain the remaining $485,000 under the policy.
