Dogged Representation Aids Family in Fatal Drunken Driving Case

It was an early fall evening. A 73-year-old man had picked his grandson up at football practice and was driving the young teenager home. It was a routine repeated daily by thousands of grandparents and parents. Nothing out of the ordinary.

But as the two traveled through Philadelphia’s East Mount Airy neighborhood, the ordinary errand turned horribly extraordinary. A drunken 21-year-old man ran a stop sign and slammed into the grandfather’s car. The older man died at the scene. His grandson was treated at a hospital for minor injuries.

McMonagle, Perri, McHugh & Mischak aggressively investigated the case. The firm demanded justice, pushing the insurance companies to pay out the largest possible monetary award in the heart-rending case. The firm also handled family matters, setting up an estate for the grandfather and a trust for the grandson. Through dogged representation, attorneys recovered the maximum amount of money possible for the family, given the insurance policies involved.
