  • LinkedIn

A member of a volunteer service organization was involved in a motor vehicle accident while performing their volunteer duties for Christ King Parish. An 82 year old man was rendered quadriplegic as a result of the accident. The volunteer group didn't have insurance and the driver’s automobile liability insurance had a limit of $500,000. The Parish was required to pay the remainder of the $17 million settlement.
