$3 Million Wrongful Death Settlement
December 15, 2015
GTTC Partner Mark Wilner, along with co-counsel at Keller Rohrback L.L.P., obtained a $3,000,000 wrongful death settlement for a local Mercer Island family. Jack Y. Chen died on April 8, 2015 when a construction component (a “balloon wall”) of his dream home being built fell on him while he was at the construction site. The King County Superior Court approved the seven-figure settlement following multiple mediations involving six parties and complex insurance coverage disputes, including a federal court declaratory judgment action.
