Heuer Jr.  INTOXICATED FRIEND KILLS HIS FRIEND IN CAR CRASHEstate of H v. State Farm. INJURIES ALLEGED:  Death SETTLEMENT AMOUNT:  $50,000.00. HIGHEST OFFER:  $50,000.00. PLAINTIFF'S ATTORNEY:  James A. Heuer, Jr. Defense Attorney for the Estate of H: H was a passenger in a friend's car who was intoxicated and crashed the car resulting in the death of H. State Farm had disputed whether or not H was a member of the household of his parents and thus eligible for no-fault benefits. Through investigation and negotiation, Heuer, Lund & Flores was able to convince the State Farm Insurance Company that H was, in fact, a member of the household entitling him to No-Fault benefits and underinsured motorist benefits. This tragic loss of life would have been worse if the family had been left without the insurance coverages that the lawyers at Heuer Fischer, P.A. were able to obtain after Sta M v Magel's Carnival-Midway Case: Personal Injury M and her cousin looked forward to the carnival coming to Hinkley each year. The Zipper ride was one of their favorites.A carnival employee is responsible for  securing the door on the ride before the ride begins. The passengers have no control over the exterior lock. The carnival employee neglected to put the pin in the door and began the ride. M and her cousin fell out of the ride when the Zipper door opened landing on the ground sustaining severe injuries. These injuries included severe head trauma with brain injury, fractured lumbar vertebrae, numerous cuts and bruises. We negotiated a settlement with the insurance carrier for all parties involved. It is believed to be one of the largest monetary settlements for amusement park negligence in Minnesota.KARE11 NBC Two hurt in carnival ride accident in HinckleyStar Tribune Carnival Accident Zipper Ridete Farm initially denied the claim.
