Strom Law Firm recently blogged about several wrongful death lawsuits filed by the family of Nicole Miller. Miller died resulting from a 2011 accident in which a truck struck her tent at the All Good Music Festival. Two other women sustained injuries resulting from the accident.
The truck driver settled a wrongful death lawsuit filed by Nicole Miller’s father, Kim Miller. The driver also settled personal injury lawsuits filed by the two other women injured in the incident. The settlement states the driver, Clay Lewin, is to pay $300,000 in compensation for Nicole’s death to her father. He also must pay both injured victims $100,000 each.
According to WIS, Kim Miller also recently reached a tentative agreement with the defendants involved in the other wrongful death lawsuits stemming from the music festival accident.
Miller reached a tentative settlement with:
- Walther Productions and its principal, Tim Walther, based out of Maryland
- Marvin Huggins and Marvin’s Mountaintop campground located near Masontown, W.Va
- Promoters Junipa Contento and James Tobin
The most recent motion does not specify how much each defendant is to pay in regards to the settlement.
Miller’s other lawsuits with several parking and security companies are still pending.
