The Trial Law Offices of Bradley I. Kramer, M.D., Esq. recently obtained a $2,000,000 settlement in a wrongful death action on behalf of the decedent’s surviving spouse and their four children. In this case, while walking across a crosswalk, Gigi Darwish was struck and killed by Defendant Reyna Castellon’s 2006 vehicle, driven by Ms. Castellon who was on her way to work. Ms. Castellon was employed at the time as a nanny by a family, which was also named as a Defendant. Ms. Castellon admitted fault for the collision, and there was no dispute regarding the cause or effect of the collision or the cause of death of Ms. Tawfik. Plaintiffs Hossam Tawfik—Ms. Tawfik’s then-husband—and their four children Ahmed, Rana, Nouran and Nermin, claimed that Defendant Ms. Castellon was acting within the course and scope of her employment with the Defendant family at the time of the collision and that they were entitled to recover damages from all Defendants. The Defendant family, as Ms. Castellon’s employers, denied that Ms. Castellon was acting within the course and scope of her employment at the time of the collision, and all Defendants disputed the extent of damages incurred by Plaintiffs. The matter was settled the day of trial.
