Chicago Wrongful Death Lawsuit Results in $13.7M Verdict

by Administrator 24. April 2009 04:07

A Chicago man has been awarded $13.7 million in a car accident lawsuit filed by the family of a BMW salesman who was killed in a high-speed crash that occurred while driving 90 mph during a test drive. Traveling 90 mph in a 45 mph zone, the BMW clipped another vehicle and hit a light pole, killing 22 year old Roger Czapski. Czapski, the car salesman, was seated next o the driver, 20 year old Christopher Maher. Maher survived with serious injuries. 

Maher denied any liability in the lawsuit, arguing that Czapski contributed to his own death by encouraging him to drive faster than the speed limit and never asking him to slow down. The test drive also violated the BMW dealership policy by going outside the established route. After a one week trial the jury returned a verdict of $13.7 million for the Czapski family.
